Commercial subsidiaries – potential and perils

November 9, 2021 @ 3:00pm 1hr Online

The workshop will be led by Sue Harvey (Partner) and Ceri Victory-Rowe (Director) from Campbell Tickell.

Group structures are often seen as a means of ring-fencing risk, but can in fact amplify it. Sue and Ceri will talk about how the relationship between housing association parent and commercial subsidiary should be understood and managed - including the implications of creating a group structure, the identification and management of risk, and what good governance arrangements might look like. They’ll also share some examples of how organisations have been tripped up by subsidiaries, and how to avoid this happening to you.

There’ll be an opportunity to ask questions, and you may want to read Sue’s blogs on managing the risks associated with development companies beforehand: Part 1 and Part 2.
