AIMA Hong Kong Education Seminar: Fund Manager Code of Conduct Update
In this session speakers from Simmons & Simmons and Credit Suisse will discuss the latest APAC regulatory developments impacting the hedge fund industry, as well as an overview of what to expect as we look forward to 2018.
This primary focus of the session will be the SFC’s recently announced changes to the Fund Manager Code of Conduct as reflected in its November 2017 Consultation Conclusions on Proposals to Enhance Asset Management Regulation and Point-of-sale Transparency. These changes will impact all Type-9 (asset management) licensed fund managers in a number of material ways, and many will represent a significant departure from the SFC’s historical approach to the oversight of private funds managed from Hong Kong. We will provide an overview of the changes and address the practical implications of these changes for Hong Kong based managers.
The session will also include an overview of other relevant regulatory and market developments which are likely to impact managers in the coming year.
