AIMA Hong Kong Seminar: Employment Issues for Funds and Asset Managers

Hong Kong

AIMA and Herbert Smith Freehills invite you to join our lunch seminar in Hong Kong on Tuesday 18 June 2019.  

The Herbert Smith Freehills employment, pensions and incentives team will examine key employment considerations that impact investment management firms from hiring to firing.

During the session, the speakers will discuss the following:              

  • Effective incentives: retaining and restraining employees though incentive plan design, implementation and variation
  • Managing key man risks: protecting company confidential information and IP and managing competition and solicitation by former employees
  • Emerging employment issues in transactions: structuring employee transfers and assignments and the rise of the 'Weinstein clause'
