WELCOME TO THE FIRST EDITION of Asset Management in Focus, a quarterly review of European regulatory issues. As the European regulatory landscape continues to evolve, we appreciate the challenges asset managers face staying on top of new developments. With this in mind, we have designed this review to provide you with user-friendly overviews of issues relevant to your business.
Whilst Brexit remains front and centre, in this edition we have focused on many other topics of importance to those in the asset management space, including changes in the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD), cross-border marketing rules, changes to capital requirements, MLD 5, Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) implementation, sustainability, and enforcement issues for asset managers. We have also included a horizon scanning section to enable you to see, at a glance, what is coming down the road over the next quarter. We hope you find this review useful. Please feel free to contact any member of the team if you have any queries.
