I first attended a Tour de Finance in Avignon back in 2013, partly because I liked the conference’s catchy name but also because I wanted to learn about smart ways to manage my money. This year I presented at their two conferences in Languedoc to inform the attendees about getting health coverage in France and also gave an overview of Renestance’s full-service re-nesting solutions.
Set in Classic French Estates
The venues in Pézenas and Vers-Pont-du-Gard were gorgeous old stone buildings, dressed up in Languedoc blue skies and sunshine. The presenters were challenged to keep the audience’s mind from wandering outside to the elegant buffet and chilled local wines.
Helpful Info for English-speakers in France
Besides the delicious free lunch, the conference features plenty of interesting information, especially on:
• How French tax-deferred and tax-exempt accounts, like PEAs and Assurance Vie, can be incorporated into a diversified, international portfolio
• The different ways you can hedge against currency fluctuations by using Currencies Direct
• How independent financial advisors at Spectrum work with several wealth management companies to create a tailored solution for you
• The different options for health insurance coverage in France.
As Renestance is still quite young, I took the opportunity to spread the word about how we can help English-speakers live out their French dream. Whether you need information, services, or access to a dynamic Anglo network (social and professional), contact us so we can connect you to the solution. Nicole joined me for the Pézenas session, and Jennifer came to the one in Vers-Pont-du-Gard. The highlight of these events for team Renestance was getting to speak with so many interesting people.
I enjoyed my experiences as both attendee and presenter at these conferences. The Tour de Finance travels all around France, so if you’re interested in attending a conference near you, check here for upcoming dates and venues.
