Regulatory responses and challenges to the crisis for the asset management industry

Regulatory responses and challenges to the crisis for the asset management industry

A webinar presented by the IBA Asset Management and Investment Funds Committee

supported by

The asset management and funds industry has been exposed to the most recent public health and economic crisis. A number of regulatory issues have been triggered, namely questions linked to the asset management of portfolios in a wider sense, the administration of funds as well as liquidity issues, on the level of both end investments and the funds. Further, the general regulatory restrictions imposed on an urgent and temporary basis have impacted the industry as a whole. Digitalisation has also evolved as being a key answer to some aspects of the crisis.

This webinar will deal with those issues across the jurisdictions to highlight the key aspects of this crisis for the asset management and funds industry. It is planned that a second webinar be held with representatives from regulators to shed light on these different issues later in June.
