Alternative asset managers are confronted with new operational challenges as they will need to rethink their internal processes and procedures. Service providers are facing also in parallel new role and responsibilities. Both need to minimize adverse effects on their business and operations while considering harnessing cost of implementation as well as day to day expense structure.
Fund industry professionals are currently gathering at the third Annual Malta Spring Fund Conference to discuss the latest implications for funds, managers and service providers. Organised by The European and Swiss Network of Asset and Fund Managers and co-sponsored by Abacus Fund Administration, the event is held at Westin Resort, St Julian’s.
Participants will reflect on the high regulatory expectations associated with implementing the Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS IV), Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).
With tightening regulatory environments prevailing in Europe and the US, many leading financial jurisdictions are facing uncertainties about how their domestic markets will react to anticipated changes which are being implemented.
Abacus Fund Administration managing director Paul Kneen, director Garry Crossan and general manager Mario Psaila will be representing the Isle of Man fiduciary and fund services specialists, embracing more than 30 years’ experience.
