Webinars in collaboration with NICSA

In 2017/2018, ALFI has organised 4 webinars in collaboration with NICSA. These online events are free of charge and open to all fund industry professionals.

The latest webinars focused on the following topics:

Are you GDPR-ready?

The General Data Protection Regulation came into force across the EU on 25 May 2018. Investment fund complexes, distributors, fund administrators and depositaries with global reach will need to consider their controls and processes as they relate to personal data. This live webinar discussed the main elements of the regulation and resulting obligations for the fund industry and provided practical guidance on “operationalising” GDPR principles.

Investing in Chinese capital markets

China has become the second-largest economy worldwide. The country’s equity market ranks second and its fixed income market third among world markets. What are the options for investment funds and institutional investors to access these markets? Will they further open to foreign investors? Join us for an educational discussion around the “dos and don’ts” of accessing the Chinese capital markets.

Countdown to MiFID II

The second version of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II) has implications for anyone seeking to sell funds in Europe. This EU directive came into force in January 2018 with aims at increasing transparency and reducing costs for private investors. Global industry experts provided useful information on what it takes to increase investor protection and on the preparations for MiFID legislation.
