Asia Outbound is the leading Asia-based provider of conferences, business development services, and online news channels designed to assist corporate sructuring, asset protection and immigration service providers. We assist these groups of professionals to reach and effectively serve financial intermediaries and HNWI in Asia.

Asia Outbound is among the most trusted resources for Asia’s business and investment leaders, providing them with uncompromising commentary, concise analysis, and direct access to the offshore world and its professionals.


"As an offshore lawyer specializing in fiduciary solutions from Hong Kong since the 1990s, in my view the Asia Outbound series is one of the best for building networks and reputation among the clients with whom we are keen to work. For local delegates it provides a valuable learning insight into the “new world” of sophisticated offshore structuring, and an opportunity to meet leading professionals first hand."
- Leon Mao
Former Head of Trusts & Offshore Legal Counsel
at First Advisory Group
"I think this is the most important summit in the calendar. It's a great opportunity for Harneys as a BVI and Cayman law firm because we are meeting people who have clients who have very particular needs of investing their money outbound. It's the networking opportunities and meeting people that is the beauty of this conference. Everyone is here in the knowledge that they should network and it's a very fruitful place for networking. Very slick and well-organized operations and we’ve been very impressed."
- Ian Mann
Managing Partner at Harneys
"The British Virgin Islands, as a leading offshore jurisdiction, has been working with Asia Outbound to do all our marketing in China since 2011. We have been their top level sponsors of all the well known Asia Outbound Summits and they have consistently delivered the top delegates at these well-organized events. We have had a great experience and always look forward to working with their great team on future projects/events."
- C. Maritza Mercer
Former Chief Operating Officer
at BVI Finance


Why UAE?

Why you should attend the 2022 Asia Outbound Summit Series

Since the inception of the Asia Outbound Summit series in 2010, Asia’s HNWI, investment groups, and corporations have developed an ever-increasing need for sophisticated international wealth, immigration, tax and asset protection services. This demand, coupled with increasing pressure from local and international authorities for transparency has created a massive gap in traditional cross-border planning for local practitioners.
The Asia Outbound Summit series has been designed exclusively to close this gap, and equip local practitioners with the much needed information and resources to effectively serve their corporate and HNWI clients.

Why UAE?

  • Middle East’s HNWI population has increased from 400k to 800k in the past 10 years, making it one of the fastest growing HNWI populations in the world. This makes the UAE intermediaries the ideal target to reach Middle Eastern HNWI in order to assist in asset protection & corporate structuring for these newly minted HNWI. (Capgemini World Wealth Report 2021)
  • 58% of multinational investment migration firms count the Middle East as their most important market for client volume. For investment migration providers, the Middle East is an essential market to develop a client base. (Investment Migration Insider)
  • Foreign direct investment outflows from the United Arab Emirates amounted to over 20 Bln USD in 2019. This figure is a 10x increase from a decade earlier. Inward and outward investment are creating strong demand for corporate structuring and tax planning. (Statista)
  • Dubai remains one of the most preferred destinations for investors. Dubai ranks 4th in terms of greenfield projects and 6th in foreign capital attracted. Meeting local practitioners will help you and your clients take advantage of investment opportunities into and out of the region. (Financial Times Global FDI Report)
  • The UAE is envisioning the future beyond the COVID 19 crisis and working towards doubling its economy by 2030. This means greater demand for corporate structuring, immigration and wealth protection services as wealth and economic growth explode. (Ministry of Economy)
