Check out the conference report!
Designed as a unique platform to allow participants from Europe, the United States and Asia to share knowledge and exchange experiences, this conference enjoys a secure place in the agenda of many fund industry professionals. We expect more than 800 delegates and speakers from throughout the world and up to 40 exhibitors showcasing their products and solutions serving the asset management industry.
Keeping with its tradition and building on Luxembourg's position as a leading hub for cross-border fund distribution, the conference programme will focus on legal, regulatory, economic, political and technological developments that are likely to impact cross-border fund distribution.
A view from around the world:
|Capital Markets Union, on the verge of a new era: Will the European Commission’s top priority really enhance the free flow of capital in Europe and increase the role that market-based finance plays in intermediating capital to European companies, projects and governments?|
|Asia – the ‘promised land’ for fund distributors? Which investment funds are hip, which ones leave Asian investors cold? In light of local passporting initiatives, what does the future of UCITS look like in Asia? Which distribution channels and strategies are rewarding, which ones risk to be bottomless pits?||Brazil’s fund market opens its gates:|
Recent regulatory changes make international funds more easily accessible to local investors. How can asset managers capitalize on these changes? What are the prospects for an even further opening-up of this huge investment fund market?
|Digitalising today’s distribution success:|
The trend seems irreversible - the marketing and distribution of products and services is increasingly digital. Can fund industry players and platforms keep pace with this rapid evolution? How can we make our proven traditional distribution models fit for the digital age?
|After the regulatory wave: back to business?|
Many fund industry professionals feel that the rampant post-crisis regulatory activity has passed its peak and that the time is right to concentrate on business expansion. A fallacy? Regulators from the UK, France, Ireland and Luxembourg reveal and discuss what is still in the pipeline
