MFA to hold inaugural European Conference in London


The Managed Funds Association (MFA) inaugural European Conference, the Global Summit 2015, will be held on 27 October in London.

The conference aims to broaden awareness of the important role alternative investments play in the European Union and help fund managers navigate evolving US and EU regulatory frameworks.
“As the global voice for the alternative investment industry and its investors, MFA is excited to announce our upcoming Global Summit,” says MFA President and CEO Richard H Baker (pictured). “This conference will provide a focused day of content designed to help managers gain clarity on what they need to know about investing in US capital markets, advising US-based institutional investors about investing in their funds, and complying with key differences in US and global regulations.”
Confirmed speakers include ESMA Executive Director Verena Ross, Securities and Exchange Commission Office of International Affairs Director Paul A. Leder, Commodity Futures Trading Commission Division of Market Oversight Director Vincent McGonagle, Financial Conduct Authority Head of OTC Derivatives and Post-Trade Policy Thomas Springbett and others. Large U.S. institutional investors are also among the confirmed attendees.
Delegates will discuss a variety of timely global operational, regulatory and compliance issues for the industry. Each segment of the conference will deliver practical advice that managers can implement immediately within their businesses, including the latest on U.S. and EU tax and regulatory compliance, 40ACT and UCITS funds, capital and financing charges, marketing across and within various jurisdictions, derivatives transactions and other topics central to fund managers and their investors.
