Title of Talk:
The Missing Billions – UK Unclaimed Assets
Short synopsis of Talk:
Missed assets and liabilities are a growing issue in estate administration and astonishingly 88% of practitioners report that identification of all estate accounts is becoming more difficult with the rise of digital and online banking. The figures demonstrate there are clearly issues.
This talk will cover several key learning objectives including:
- The Missing Billions, the value and location of UK unclaimed assets
- The Dormant Asset Scheme, proposals by UK government
- The Implications for Executors and Beneficiaries
- Best Practice and Due Diligence
We have been working with leading industry experts in the development of free resources that will be provided to help you mitigate risks in estate administration from issues such as Missed Assets & Liabilities.
Ben is an advocate for the ability of data and technology to revolutionise how legal services are provided.
