Live Webinar

Mitigating the Risks of a Director Role in a Foreign Subsidiary

Date: Wednesday, October 24, 2018
Time: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
International trade has existed from time immemorial and will continue to do so whether or not trade wars develop. The US, having about 25% of the world’s GDP, is a large contributor to international trade. US companies will therefore continue to setup and operate foreign subsidiaries to sell their goods and services abroad and US senior management will often be requested to act as Directors of these subsidiaries.

The personal risks involved in accepting these roles can vary substantially from those incurred here in US both positively and negatively. Some of these risks are insurable under D&O policies and others are not.

During this webinar, we will laser focus on the growth regions of the world where US companies typically expand, systematically review the additional personal risks you take on when you accept a director role and discuss how you can take action to mitigate these risks. The goal of this webinar is to make you more aware of your personal exposure when accepting a director role in a foreign subsidiary and to indicate how you can mitigate this risk.

Dr. Shan Nair
President, Nucleus
Dr. Shan Nair is an entrepreneur and consultant on international expansion. He was the first to spot and develop the niche market of International Expansion Services (IES) which was previously fragmented. In the process he has worked with many companies in their early stages who have since become household names such as Tesla Motors, FaceTime and Sonus Networks. His role is to promote the services offered by Nucleus and to work with the management team to ensure a high level of technical excellence and client care is maintained at all times.

Nucleus is unique in that it provides true one stop, multi-disciplinary, multi-country shopping for companies seeking international expansion or with international operations. A single experienced Client Services Director and an Accounting Manager will be your sole points of contact for all of your foreign consulting needs - you will not need to chase multiple accountants, lawyers and HR consultants in different geographies or have a single contact point with little expertise acting simply as a postbox. The Client Services team is backed by staff at senior and mid-management level each having more than a decade of experience in providing IES services.

Shan has a doctorate in nuclear physics from the University of Oxford. He has received multiple recognitions for his contribution to business in the US, UK and India.
