Luxembourg, the world’s leading UCITS centre and distribution hub, has over $2.5 trillion in assets under management in UCITS investment funds. It was the first jurisdiction to adopt the first iteration of UCITS in 1985, which attracted a large number of non-EU investors to Luxembourg to use the Principality as their gateway to European investments. Where Swiss and American investors led the way, international investors have followed from Asia and Latin America, all looking to distribute and invest in, UCITS fund vehicles.

On the back of a hugely successful post-trade roundtable for funds event in London in February, Thomas Murray are delighted to announce our next event, Post-Trade Roundtable on Regulation in 2016: What does this mean for the Buy-side?

The event provides Management Companies and Depositary Banks in Luxembourg an opportunity to come together and share their approaches to monitoring their post-trade exposures in a changing regulatory environment.

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), ESMA’s US equivalent for futures market oversight, have officially come to agreement over equivalence between the clearing frameworks of the two jurisdictions. It spells the end of a long running dispute between the world’s two largest derivatives markets that has held up the implementation of mandatory central clearing, a key tenet of the G20’s 2009 Financial Reform Programme.

On Tuesday 01 March, Thomas Murray hosted a half day event in London entitled Post-Trade Risk Roundtable. The event sought to explore the regulatory hurdles being faced by those involved with the funds industry, and how firms can prepare to clear these challenges in their post-trade networks.

Topics discussed on the day included:
