STEP Europe Conference was organised for the third time on 4 October 2018, at Hotel Le Royal in Luxembourg. Hosted by STEP Benelux, the conference was a great success, attracting almost 200 delegates.

An international panel of speakers, including academics, politicians, judges, and private practitioners, shared their views on the new “regulatory maze”, automatic exchange of information as well as beneficial ownership registers.  A wide range of experts from all the countries of the Region as well as the US, highlighted cross-border topics. A special focus was devoted to fintech, blockchain, and “how to avoid to be left behind”.

Peter G. Economides, Founder and Honorary Chairman of Totalserve Management Limited was among the speakers, who, after serving as a STEP Council member for many years, is retiring at the end of the year and Mr Maurizio Cohen, Chairman of STEP Monaco is taking over in his place.
