Efficient, cost effective currency exchange, property investments, wealth management and implications of the MLC 2006 were all topics discussed at the inaugural crew ‘Tour de Finance’.


For the very best crew, working on board the world’s most luxurious yachts is a career choice, not a job. The recruitment specialists at YPI Crew work hard to open candidates’ minds to the array of opportunities and skills they can take advantage of to advance their own careers and their lives still further.

“Crew have a range of very specific needs and requirements when it comes to their money,” explains Laurence Lewis, YPI Crew director, “and I am very pleased that our partnership with Currencies Direct has enabled us to create a seminar dedicated entirely to helping crew benefit from more effective currency exchange, better investments and the very best in insurance.”
The first event took place in the Royal Antibes Hotel in Antibes and, in addition to Laurence, featured speakers from Barclays Bank, Spectrum IFA Group, Bachmann Marine, Somecassur, Blue Square Immobilier and French Mortgage Xpress.
Sim Lighten, Yachting partnerships manager for Currencies Direct comments:
“We felt there was a need to provide a better platform for crew to have access to this kind of information. Now more than ever, as fiscal regulations tighten across the globe, it is increasingly important for us all to take responsibility for our own affairs. ‘Le Tour De Finance’ has done exactly this for many years, and now, with the help of YPI and YPI Crew we have been able to create seminars dedicated purely for crew.”
Details for the next ‘Tour de Finance – Yachting’ will be announced in future YPI eNewlsetters.
