This year's annual BABC British Expats Evening took place on April 25th, 2018 in the sleek offices of OFX. During the evening, guests were treated to a chance to mingle with fellow expats with food and drink, before sitting down to hear from our panel of Bay Area experts in immigration, banking, tax, and pensions. The panel consisted of: Devan Friday, (Spott Lucey & Wall), Adrian Millen (Bank of the West), Emma Cockerton (Florin Pensions LLC), James Mayock (E & M Mayock) and was moderated by Charles Cockerton, (Florin Pensions LLC). After answering a set of FAQs that had been prepared for them, the panel fielded some direct questions from the audience about their own situations, and provided excellent feedback and advice. The event concluded with more networking, and the guests enjoyed the opportunity of being able to speak one on one with the panelists.
