Hedge Fund Compliance
There has been considerable focus on the hedge fund industry during the last two years, amid cyclical investment returns, regulatory sanctions and significant EU developments.
This two-day course is designed to demonstrate to fund managers exactly what the most important regulatory issues are, how to deal with regulatory bodies and how to demonstrate compliance with the key areas, including the new EU AIFM Directive.
The course is structured around case studies presenting the best practices from the sector as well as interactive discussions.
