Beneficient wants Kansas on the map for alternatives, and your help to make it happen; Agio on meeting cyber-risks from third parties head on

If you’re attending the first day of our first virtual CFOs and COOs Forum today: welcome!

Domiciles: Beneficient was largely behind a piece of Kansas legislation, passed in April, that aims to combine all of the most attractive aspects of regimes in the likes of Delaware, Wyoming and Nevada into one construct. In June, it will be a key part of the legislations pilot launch, and the company is looking for industry input to create a unified voice ensuring its success. I spoke to president and chief fiduciary officer Derek Fletcher to find out the details.
