Mr. Richard C. Wilson
Chairman of Family Office Club
“I was motivated to join BIA Forum because the most progress is always made by thinking in a new ways, finding gaps in the marketplace, identifying new trends and I see this being the case in coming to Georgia. I'm happy to bring over best practices from clients here, but also learn how families there are managing their wealth and what can be learned by both approaches. I also believe there will be heavy investment in the region over the medium term moving forward so I want to be on top of that trend, aware of the changes, and knowledgable about the region for clients we serve in the area or who want to allocate into the country. Many times I have seen great family wealth created by taking what works in London, the U.S. or another location and then bringing it to Russia, Brazil, Dubai or elsewhere.”
