Thank you to everyone who joined us at the Austen Morris Associates Private Client Wine Dinner in Beijing on Thursday 15th March from 7:00pm onwards at TERRA. The evening was a great opportunity to sample some delicious food paired with various wines including Little Yering Station Pinot Noir, Yering Station Chardonnay, an Terrazas Malbec, Hewitson Gun Metal Riesling, and The Gap Passito Riesling for dessert. TERRA, one of the most popular venues in Beijing, managed and owed by restaurateur Gaby Alves, also responsible for Beijing’s SALT; was the perfect place to enjoy an evening out in Beijing.
Guests were treated to a sumptuous four course menu with wine pairings whilst sponsors of the evening included Austen Morris Associates and Royal London 360 with hosts including Senior Partner Mr. Matthew Beale, Partner Mr. Jon Holand, Senior Regional Associate Mr. Adrian Lyons, and Associates Mr. Kirk McArdle, Mr. Lars Wöldern and Mr. Brent Cowey along with Richard Le-Gallez from Royal London 360.
Guests enjoyed a presentation by Mr. Peter Davis from Pentech who presented the latest on pensions in the UK and throughout the world. Pentech is one of the only firms of Pensions Technicians and Actuaries in the world who are totally independent and are not connected with a bank, product provider, Law Firm, accountancy practice or insurance company. Peter, who had been on a 10 day tour throughout Asia, has over 30 years experience in the offshore market and he is very much a respected individual in the global Pension and actuary world. He discussed the current status of the UK and European economies and linked that into the current downward spiral of UK and European pensions.
From the Oysters and Seared Foie Gras and to the Beef Tenderloin and finishing with Caramelized Cottage Cheese Canutillo or the Passion fruit Crema Quemada, all guests enjoyed the food, laughter and company on the evening and we look forward to hosting you again.
