2011 has seen the passing of the AIFM Directive, the implementation of key aspects of Dodd-Frank and a number of other key regulatory initiatives in the EU and the US that affect funds, their managers, advisors and promoters in a fundamental way. As a result, industry participants are evaluating their fund structures and business arrangements to ensure compliance with the new regimes. In addition, management groups are in tandem considering tax efficient structures to mitigate the effects of higher UK rates.
Kaye Scholer partners Timothy Spangler (Investment Funds), Simon Firth (Investment Funds), Katherine Mulhern (US Securities) and Daniel Lewin (Tax) will discuss these topics, drawing on the firm’s experience this year, and will seek to predict the issues that funds, their managers and service providers will need to anticipate in 2012.
