Thursday 22 January saw the latest in the Success Series Seminars held by Morgan McKinley. We were privileged to have Shane Brett, a consultant, mentor, peer-reviewed author and thought-leader specialising in hedge funds, FinTech and the global economy speak on fund regulation and key updates for 2015.
Attending were a number of senior risk and compliance professionals from buy-side institutions within the London markets. Following a brief introduction by myself, Shane got on to the stage to begin his talk on the main pieces of regulation impacting the investment fund industry this year. They covered AIFMD, FATCA, UCITS V, EMIR, Solvency 2 and MiFID 2.
With the discussion over, it prompted a challenging yet enlightening Q and A session. The delegates were then able to retire to the boardroom to nibble on some canapés and sip some vintage red to wash it down. It proved to be an educational evening enjoyed by all.
