Investment Management and Funds
The investment services and funds industry have undergone a regulatory overhaul. Within the European Union, industry players continue to get to grips with new wide-ranging legislation and regulatory rules affecting hedge funds (AIFs), retail funds (UCITS) and certain private equity funds as well as their managers, custodians and other service providers. Keeping up with the myriad of licensing requirements and conditions is no mean feat.
