If you’re an expat in Belgium and looking for some information about your finance; thinking about buying a house, retiring, investing, or simply wanting to understand the Belgian tax system in a language you understand, then look no further.
We at the British Chamber have created the perfect event to help you sort out your wallet: the second edition of Expat Financial Affairs.
The event is taking place on Saturday 11th October and will consist of many interesting and helpful presentations from which you can pick and choose at your own leisure. There will be experts on hand throughout the day to help you with any questions that you might have.
And the best part is that it’s free!
BNP Paribas, the main sponsor, and The Fry Group, the silver sponsor, are not only money providers but are involved in the organisation of the exhibition and great supporters of the British Chamber’s projects in general. So are the Tax, Finance and Law task force members who came up with the concept of the Expat Financial Affairs originally.
We are welcoming Peter De Keyzer, Chief Economist at BNP Paribas Fortis, for our opening keynote speech: Growth makes you happy from his self-titled book. After more than five years of economic crisis and the less than optimistic future depicted by some, it is uplifting to hear that there is a way out.
‘Many economists feed today’s pessimism with regard to the future. Peter De Keyzer is a welcome exception. Yes, there are problems, but this book shows that there are also solutions. There is reason for optimism.’
Professor Paul De Grauwe, London School of Economics
Don’t miss out on his speech at 10h35, it’s early but worth it!
For a preview, listen to his interview with Radio X.
The event is taking place at Vlerick Business School, a state of the art facility with all the latest technical equipment to make your experience the best one possible. It is located on Place Rogier, an easily accessible shopping area – the perfect combination if you want to learn how to make your money work for you and celebrate with a shopping spree!
