August 27 Event at The Durham Hotel
The Triangle/Eastern N.C. Chapter of the British-American Business Council will host a networking and education session on Aug. 27 from 6-8 p.m. at The Durham Hotel, 315 E. Chapel Hill Street in Durham. Guest speakers Adrian Flambard, CTA, TEP, senior investment advisor and area manager with the deVere Group, and Claire Newman, MBE, British vice consul, British Consulate General, Atlanta, will share information regarding options for transferring company pensions out of the U.K., and provide an update on the latest developments for transferring U.K. State pension credits into the U.S. Social Security system.
The presentation will include up-to-date information on understanding of entitlements, options and issues facing expatriate members of U.K. companies. The program will conclude with Q&A and a closing networking reception. The cost is $20 for members of partner organizations, nonprofits and students; and $35 for nonmembers.
Flambard has been involved with international wealth management for 30 years, and has specialized in U.K. and international pensions for the past 15 years. He specializes in providing information to individuals on their entitlements/options, how to avoid problems, gain more control/access, and increase tax/estate planning efficiency. In addition to presenting general information at the event, Flambard will also be available for free individual consultations from Aug. 26 to Aug. 28. Please see the Triangle BABCNC website or contact Allegra Olson on 415-715-9112 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
As head of the Consular Department, Newman is charged with assisting British nationals who reside or are visiting six Southeastern states and run into serious difficulties such as accidents, victims of crime, arrest and detention. She is the Consulate’s expert on crisis planning, emergency response, and security issues, and liaises with local, state and federal law-enforcement, public safety and emergency response agencies throughout the region.
“This will be a great opportunity for all to network at The Durham Hotel and for British expats to learn critical information about options regarding their pensions,” said Steve Cain, president of Triangle BABCNC.
