Hugh James will be leading this broad level talk to place on your radars the current issues faced by not only professionals but also individual asset holders within the digital asset world, focusing particularly on the huge growth areas of cryptocurrency and NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

The talk will cover why these assets have seen huge growth, what that growth means in terms of taxation exposure, the duties on personal representatives, what professionals should be asking and advising clients who have such holdings, and what the individuals themselves can do to ensure such assets are passed on to beneficiaries – and on this latter point a quick breakdown of a particularly unfortunate case where this was not done and the devastating consequences for their loved ones as a result.
