Mr Edward Ruckland T.E.P, Chirman, STEP Worldwide,
Ms Linda Wong, Chairperson, STEP Singapore,
Ladies and gentlemen,
First, thank you very much for inviting me to be your keynote speaker. I am delighted to have this opportunity to address this gathering of STEP members and practitioners, and I would like, in particular, to welcome our overseas guests. The important work that STEP members do in helping families to plan for their future, such as the management of assets and the protection of vulnerable family members, is widely acknowledged. Supporting families and protecting vulnerable members of our society are also important issues which are close to my heart. Today, I would like to share some insights about the framework and infrastructure in Singapore that will support this kind of work.
