Fishing Across the Pond: What Do US Managers Need to Know About
Marketing into the UK?
Please join Cummings Law, The Regulatory Fundamentals Group and
MyComplianceOffice for a complimentary webinar that will simplify the key issues
managers need to address in order to market their funds to UK investors.
Tuesday, February 25: 12:00 - 1:00pm EST / 5:00 - 6:00pm GMT
With the regulatory overhaul in Europe, soliciting investors in the UK requires careful
navigation of multiple regulatory regimes. Key among these are the AIFMD and UK
financial legislation, and, while each are drafted in English, the terminology may sound
foreign to many US managers. In this webinar we will break down the language barrier by
comparing and contrasting requirements under these rules with those commonly found in
US financial regulations.
Attendees will leave with an understanding about the following:
- The extent to which the AIFMD applies to US managers marketing into the UK;
- How to fit within the reverse solicitation exemption;
- How to take advantage of the AIFMD passport when it becomes available, and how to
bridge the gap between now and then;
- How the AIFMD intersects with UK domestic rules;
- Notification that needs to be made to regulators; and
- Disclosure that must to be made to investors.
