Despite the uncertainties around Brexit, specialist partner Piers Master, who heads the international private wealth arm at Charles Russell Speechlys, says ‘a number of major families are moving to the UK’. This influx of activity from Middle Eastern and US clients has resulted in his ‘busiest ever year’. Meanwhile, political uncertainty is pressing British families to focus more on wealth structuring and planning. With changes affecting trusts and IHT on the way, Master says the capital gains landscape ‘looks particularly benign’. ‘Many clients are therefore bringing forward gifts and other planning to take advantage of the current regime,’ he notes.
