EuropeFides 2014 – Paris
Over 50 delegates representing firms from across Europe which are expert in accounting, tax and legal matters joined together at the biannual EuropeFides conference recently in the heart of Paris.
The first conference of 2014 heralded a number of changes to the network which will see it provide increased support for the member firms and their clients. The conference also saw the election of our very own Mr Simon Marsh as President of EuropeFides for the coming year.
Several firms presented their case for membership of EuropeFides to the association, representing countries across Europe including Poland, Spain, Belgium, the UK and also a subsidiary of a German member firm which has recently been established in Tianjin, China. We are delighted that our good friends at Russell-Cooke were among the firms making a presentation and we are thrilled to welcome them as member of EuropeFides.
The conference consisted several seminars featuring various keynote speakers who covered a wide range of topics including working across borders, tackling bribery and money laundering across Europe and globally and examining potential businesses in cross border acquisitions. One of the key seminars was presented by Simon Marsh along with Manfred Klein, from German member firm, Frank Ginster & Partners, which involved speaking in 22 different languages – just to say hello!
2014 is set to see the recovery of the European economy and the strong network of connections provided by EuropeFides will ensure WSM Advisors can support all of our clients in growing their businesses across the continent.
