Regulation is a key driver in the industry and in an unprecedented age of openness and transparency continues to be the no. 1 driver for asset managers investing in data and reporting initiatives. Companies want to mitigate the risk of inaccurate information being in the public domain and many are embarking on data management projects – which will save time, reduce errors and automate processes. The key themes we see center on capability to deliver a systematic, repeatable and auditable data publication process for client-facing data.
This webcast will focus on how upcoming regulations will impact the industry and how asset managers need to prepare to ensure they stay ahead in a highly competitive market. Specific topics to be covered include: the latest version of AIFMD, the final throes of the Retail Distribution Review, the latest on KIID for PRIPS, UCITS V, how being important or “SIFI” is no longer so desirable, Volcker, FATCA and last but certainly not least Pillar III of Solvency II. Finally, we will touch on what is around the corner and run through some recommendations with respect to preparing for the swathe of upcoming regulatory change.
