Hedge Funds Regulatory Climate - Threats and Opportunities 2009

Event : Hedge Funds Regulatory Climate - Threats and Opportunities 2009

Wed, 14/10/2009 - 08:30
Conducted by : Hedgestar
Contact : Hasan Mansur

How would current regulatory threats and challenges affect UK and US Fund Managers? The EU proposals at first glance may appear mild - impacting Alternatives Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) for hedge funds and private equity firms but the implied remit is daunting... The European Socialist Agenda has already amended an initial disclosure threshold of AUM of 250M down to AUM of 100M for leveraged funds. In June the US unveiled massive proposals on financial regulations while IOSCO called for Hedge Funds to register with national regulators.

The Alternatives Industry in Europe and the US has less than a year before legislation is adequately framed and passed so this conference is of added significance. HEDGESTAR® strongly recommends AIM participants to attend this event. Due to limited places book EARLY to avoid disappointment !
