Leading trust and corporate services provider Equiom is expecting big developments in the arena of virtual reality at the European iGaming Congress and Expo (EiG) in Berlin this week, where it will be promoting the company’s service offering in eGaming.

Equiom’s attendance at EiG follows news of the company’s recent expansion into new jurisdictions, strengthening its international presence and position as a key industry expert.

Representing Equiom will be head of eBusiness Peter Greenhill, eBusiness manager Adam Beighton, director of legal Barry Smith and senior officer in business development Sophie Campbell.

Commenting on the upcoming event, Greenhill said: "This year, we’ve seen some very interesting new opportunities in eGaming, including a shift towards virtual reality, a new trend that we’re expecting to see illustrated at the event. As ever, the team and I are looking forward to showcasing our range of expertise and advising those attending of our valuable services.

"Having recently returned from a trip where I spoke at the ‘China Daily Asia Leadership Roundtable Panel’ on the topic of their digital era, we are well placed to talk to prospects and existing clients about the latest industry news and global trends."

The Equiom team will be on hand to advise attendees about the most appropriate jurisdiction for their eGaming company needs, as well as providing advice on how best to structure companies while navigating the industry’s complex and ever-changing licensing requirements.

Equiom has recently announced the acquisition of Heritage Trust Group, an independent Asian corporate services provider with offices in Singapore, Hong Kong and the British Virgin Islands (BVI).

Established in 2002 and led by Chief Executive Officer Angelo Venardos, Heritage Trust Group provides trust, foundation, fiduciary, corporate and accounting services.

Equiom Global CEO Sheila Dean commented: "The acquisition of Heritage Trust Group expands Equiom’s jurisdictional reach into the new areas of Singapore and BVI while expanding our current team in Hong Kong. Equiom’s growth strategy continues to concentrate on achieving scale and substance throughout every jurisdiction we operate in.

"I’m pleased to welcome Angelo and his team to Equiom – they echo Equiom’s philosophy of building long-standing relationships with clients and very much mirror our client services ethos. For Equiom clients this provides further access to international services and expertise. I thank our equity partners LDC and our legal advisers Gowling WLG for their valued input and support throughout this acquisition project."

Angelo Venardos, CEO of Heritage Trust Group, added: "This is a positive move for Heritage Trust Group. Our priority has always been to provide the best service in the industry and this has become increasingly difficult in an environment faced with more competition and regulatory requirements.

"Becoming part of the Equiom Group will ensure our clients continue to receive the service they deserve, in addition to benefitting from the breadth of services and skills available through the wider Equiom Group. Heritage clients can rest assured that they will continue to liaise with the same contacts who will now become employees of Equiom. From their perspective, nothing will change other than access to a much expanded range of global services."

A total of 60 staff, including the senior management team, will join Equiom Group with immediate effect. The Hong Kong team will move into Equiom’s established offices in Wanchai and Heritage will rebrand to Equiom in January 2017.
