The troubles of the banks have meant that regulatory pressure on the asset management industry has been increasing in recent years. This pressure is highly political and, in both Europe and the US, some derives from a lack of understanding and too rigid a belief that all sectors of the financial services industry, whether banks, insurers or asset managers, be treated equally.
This conference will provide a detailed analysis of the new regulatory framework that the regulators in the UK, Europe and the US are putting in place and examine the practical challenges that implementation will present to the industry.
Presentations and expert panels will cover the following topics:
Current EU agenda for the industry
The FCA’s supervision focus
The US position and regulatory overlap with Europe
Making FATCA compliance systems future-proof to cope with the coming wave of similar tax transparency agreements
Culture and product design: what are the cultural implications of putting the customer first?
The impact of regulation on industry and competition
The new challenges for depositories
How can IFAs best handle the increasing challenge?
Further down the road: what will be the impact of possible regulation on securities lending and money market trusts?
Who should attend?
This conference should be attended by senior management and compliance executives in the asset management and fund distribution industries, as well as their professional advisers.
