FSA Asset Management Conference

Published in 

Following a very successful 2009 conference focused on the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, which attracted over 400 delegates, the UK FSA’s Asset Management Sector Team will host a range of experts who will explore the wider regulatory outlook for asset managers.

The conference is being held against a background of numerous domestic, European and global policy initiatives that will have an impact across the vast range of firms that manage retail and institutional assets, as well as those providing them with administrative, custodial and legal services.

Assistants will be joined by the Chairman of the UK FSA, Lord Turner, as well as Didier Reynders, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance and Institutional Reforms of Belgium, who currently holds the European Union Presidency during a crucial period for key decision-making on AIFMD.

Other organisations represented include BlackRock, JP Morgan Asset Management, State Street and HSBC.
Responsibility for policy-making within Europe has rested with EU institutions for some time, and this has been mirrored in the development of pan-European business operating models. Increased global consumption of European asset management expertise − such as through UCITS structures − is likely to drive the further development of business models, and identifying and dealing with regulatory gaps will be a key part of future European policy-making.
The conference is an ideal opportunity to comment on regulatory developments, and help define the agenda for asset management policy-making.

ECMI will soon publish a report on the contents of the Conference.
