Investment Funds - Categorisation, Marketing & Regulated Activities
The UK's regulatory framework for investment funds and those who market, operate, manage and advise them is complex. Regardless of where in the world a fund and its management are, and the type of investor the fund is targeting, UK regulation may have an impact. It is immaterial whether the fund invests in financial instruments, real estate or any other property or commodity.
It is critical to assess this impact as part of the overall planning of the fund's constitution and location.
This webinar is aimed at anyone involved in setting up a fund or providing services to it, whether as professional advisers, financiers , insurers or other specialists.
