Management companies are having to face up to post-trade risk in their risk management processes. How easy is this for them?

On Thursday 28 April, Thomas Murray hosted a half-day event in Luxembourg entitled Post-trade risk roundtable: How to effectively identify, monitor and manage post-trade risk. The event sought to explore the regulatory hurdles faced by those involved with the funds industry, and how firms can mitigate risks in their post-trade networks.

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.

Thomas Murray Data Services spoke to ALFI chairman, Marc Saluzzi at the ALFI London Conference about his time as the chairman of the organisation, the challenges faced and the regulatory focus upon the fund industry.
