Brexit Impact on Alternative Managers: Views from Europe and the U.S.
October 17 @ 17:30 - 20:00
London is the hub of the alternative investment industry in and across Europe. Will that change with the playing out of the Brexit negotiations? The outcome could have a range of industry impacts, including employee domicile, local client access to funds, regulatory adjustments.
In this event co-sponsored by one of NY-AIR’s partners, CAIA, our panel of speakers will aim to establish what the new difficulties are, and to discuss potential action fund managers might be willing to take to mitigate any adverse consequences of Brexit on their businesses, from a commercial and regulatory standpoint.
