We have wills, but is there a way?

Have a problem? Been treated unfairly? Our consumer advocate is on the case for you.

My husband and I had both of our wills drawn up in the UK after our two children were born, but friends have told us they may not apply here. We do not own property here - just a car! So do we need to make our wills Sharia-compliant? It seems to be quite a costly process. AH Dubai In short, no you don't. Also, there is no such thing as a "Sharia-compliant will", as people use this term to mean one that circumvents the application of Sharia law. Provided the wills reflect your current wishes, then they are fine. Drawing up a further will would invalidate the ones you have now. As you are British citizens, and presumably UK-domiciled, then you must write wills under the laws of the UK, as you will be subject to UK inheritance tax and regulations no matter where you reside.

Sharia law as applied in the UAE is relevant only to assets held in the Emirates, and ideally you will keep your money offshore. Should either of you die while you are a resident of the UAE, you would then need to have the will translated and attested, but there is no need to do that now. You should, however, do the following things: ? Draw up a "Letter of Wishes" to provide for an interim guardian for your children in the UAE. This must be signed by two witnesses.

? Make sure you have your own bank account for money you can access outside the UAE, as in the event of your husband's death any accounts with your husband's name on them, whether single or joint, will be frozen indefinitely. ? Be aware that vehicles are also impounded if in your husband's name, so it's best to have at least one in your own name. Sadly, I hear of too many people being given wholly incorrect information regarding the writing of wills while residents in the UAE.

It is best to avoid the so-called will writers, who have done little more than take a course, and to seek advice only from a lawyer experienced in family law. I can recommend suitable professionals if you need them. I have a new job starting in August and my visa is currently being cancelled by my existing employer. My current job ends in four weeks and I am going for a break back to the UK before starting with my new company. I have been hearing rumours that my bank account will be inactive as soon as my gratuity goes into it. Is this true? I have loan payments coming out of my bank account so can't afford to have it not working. Can you shed any light on this? Does it vary from bank to bank? CE Abu Dhabi

It is standard practice for most banks to freeze an account when they receive a payment from an employer marked as "final payment". Unless you have outstanding debts or loans, it should be immediately unfrozen once you contact them to explain the situation. Banks do this to ensure that the money in your current account is directed to your debts with them and not withdrawn.

If you have a new, written employment contract, then you may need to show this to the bank as a form of security, because many institutions are wary of people potentially absconding without settling their debts. The bank's helpfulness may vary depending on who you bank with and speak to. If you have any difficulties, please come back to me as I am likely to have contacts at the bank that can assist.

I retired three years ago but have remained in the UAE as my destination of choice using the property I own in Dubai as the means to obtain a residence visa. The recent changes to the visa law restrict me to renewal every six months, which is most inconvenient - in many situations, such as re-registering my vehicle, I am required to present my passport with 12 months of visa validity. My daughter and her family are also residents in the UAE. I understand that children may sponsor parents, but do they have to be dependents? As my wife and I are of independent means, would that disqualify our son-in-law from sponsoring us? We want to enjoy another three years before having to renew our residence visa. IS Dubai

UAE residents who have a valid residency visa are permitted to sponsor parents for a period of up to one year at a time. The guidelines state that the parents must demonstrate that they are financially dependent on their adult child and that there is no one in their home country who can take care of them. There are also various monetary requirements. As you own a property in the UAE, are of independent means and are already a resident, it is clear that you are not dependent on your daughter and son-in-law, and in your case such an application would not be approved by the authorities.

I have a number of unsecured loans with two different banks in the UAE, for fairly substantial sums, and am interested to know if my parents back in France would be liable for paying them back if I died. FB Abu Dhabi When someone dies, any debts they leave are paid out of their estate (the money and property that they own), prior to passing money to beneficiaries. Anyone else is liable for the debts of the deceased only if the liabilities were held jointly or someone acted as a guarantor for that person.

Note that in the case of a husband and wife, the money owed to creditors takes priority in the distribution of assets, so they must be repaid before other assets are passed to beneficiaries, including the spouse.

Mercer, the investment consulting arm of US services company Marsh & McLennan, expects its wealth division to at least double its assets under management (AUM) in the Middle East as wealth in the region continues to grow despite economic headwinds, a company official said.

Mercer Wealth, which globally has $160 billion in AUM, plans to boost its AUM in the region to $2-$3bn in the next 2-3 years from the present $1bn, said Yasir AbuShaban, a Dubai-based principal with Mercer Wealth.

Within the next two to three years, we are looking at reaching $2 to $3 billion as a conservative estimate and we do see an opportunity to do so,” said Mr AbuShaban.

Mercer does not directly make investments, but allocates clients’ money they have discretion to, to professional asset managers. They also provide advice to clients.

“We have buying power. We can negotiate on their (client’s) behalf with asset managers to provide them lower fees than they otherwise would have to get on their own,” he added.

Mercer Wealth’s clients include sovereign wealth funds, family offices, and insurance companies among others.

From its office in Dubai, Mercer also looks after Africa, India and Turkey, where they also see opportunity for growth.

Wealth creation in Middle East and Africa (MEA) grew 8.5 per cent to $8.1 trillion last year from $7.5tn in 2015, higher than last year’s global average of 6 per cent and the second-highest growth in a region after Asia-Pacific which grew 9.9 per cent, according to consultancy Boston Consulting Group (BCG). In the region, where wealth grew just 1.9 per cent in 2015 compared with 2014, a pickup in oil prices has helped in wealth generation.

BCG is forecasting MEA wealth will rise to $12tn by 2021, growing at an annual average of 8 per cent.

Drivers of wealth generation in the region will be split evenly between new wealth creation and growth of performance of existing assets, according to BCG.

Another general trend in the region is clients’ looking for a comprehensive approach to investing, according to Mr AbuShaban.

“Institutional investors or some of the families are seeing a slowdown in the available capital they have to invest and in that sense they are looking at optimizing the way they manage their portfolios and making sure they are not investing haphazardly and different parts of their investment are working together,” said Mr AbuShaban.

Some clients also have a higher appetite for risk, given the low interest-rate environment that does not provide enough yield for some institutional investors. These clients are keen to invest in illiquid assets, such as private equity and infrastructure.

“What we have seen is a desire for higher returns in what has been a low-return environment specifically in various fixed income or bonds,” he said.

“In this environment, we have seen a de facto increase in the risk that clients are taking in things like illiquid investments, private equity investments, infrastructure and private debt, those kind of investments were higher illiquidity results in incrementally higher returns.”

The Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one of the largest sovereign wealth funds, said in its 2016 report that has gradually increased its exposure in direct private equity and private credit transactions, mainly in Asian markets and especially in China and India. The authority’s private equity department focused on structured equities owing to “their defensive characteristics.”

Wealth creation in Middle East and Africa (MEA) grew 8.5 per cent to $8.1 trillion last year from $7.5tn in 2015, higher than last year’s global average of 6 per cent and the second-highest growth in a region after Asia-Pacific which grew 9.9 per cent, according to consultancy Boston Consulting Group (BCG). In the region, where wealth grew just 1.9 per cent in 2015 compared with 2014, a pickup in oil prices has helped in wealth generation.

BCG is forecasting MEA wealth will rise to $12tn by 2021, growing at an annual average of 8 per cent.

Drivers of wealth generation in the region will be split evenly between new wealth creation and growth of performance of existing assets, according to BCG.

Another general trend in the region is clients’ looking for a comprehensive approach to investing, according to Mr AbuShaban.

“Institutional investors or some of the families are seeing a slowdown in the available capital they have to invest and in that sense they are looking at optimizing the way they manage their portfolios and making sure they are not investing haphazardly and different parts of their investment are working together,” said Mr AbuShaban.

Some clients also have a higher appetite for risk, given the low interest-rate environment that does not provide enough yield for some institutional investors. These clients are keen to invest in illiquid assets, such as private equity and infrastructure.

“What we have seen is a desire for higher returns in what has been a low-return environment specifically in various fixed income or bonds,” he said.

“In this environment, we have seen a de facto increase in the risk that clients are taking in things like illiquid investments, private equity investments, infrastructure and private debt, those kind of investments were higher illiquidity results in incrementally higher returns.”

The Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, one of the largest sovereign wealth funds, said in its 2016 report that has gradually increased its exposure in direct private equity and private credit transactions, mainly in Asian markets and especially in China and India. The authority’s private equity department focused on structured equities owing to “their defensive characteristics.”

Mercer, the investment consulting arm of US services company Marsh & McLennan, expects its wealth division to at least double its assets under management (AUM) in the Middle East as wealth in the region continues to grow despite economic headwinds, a company official said.

Mercer Wealth, which globally has $160 billion in AUM, plans to boost its AUM in the region to $2-$3bn in the next 2-3 years from the present $1bn, said Yasir AbuShaban, a Dubai-based principal with Mercer Wealth.

Within the next two to three years, we are looking at reaching $2 to $3 billion as a conservative estimate and we do see an opportunity to do so,” said Mr AbuShaban.

Mercer does not directly make investments, but allocates clients’ money they have discretion to, to professional asset managers. They also provide advice to clients.

“We have buying power. We can negotiate on their (client’s) behalf with asset managers to provide them lower fees than they otherwise would have to get on their own,” he added.
