Overview: At some point in their professional career, advisers are likely to be engaged with clients who could be deemed to be in a vulnerable state. This hour long session will introduce some of the key issues that professionals need to be aware of when dealing with individuals whose judgement may be affected by mental or emotional influences. It will also suggest guidance to help advisers mitigate the risks involved whilst still delivering sound advice.

At the end of this event, the delegate will be able to identify:

  • what constitutes a vulnerable person?
  • the importance of testamentary capacity
  • best practice and professional standards
  • ways of mitigating the professional risks of advising vulnerable clients.
