Description

The Guernsey Investment Funds Association and the Alternative Investment Management Association are hosting an Autumn update on current issues in the funds industry. The event will be held as two panel discussion covering the following two key topics; 1. The Barbell Effect: here to stay? There is an apprehension among traditional asset managers that they will lose out as money increasingly shifts to cheap, passive strategies on the one hand and alternative investments and high return specialists on the other.

Current trends in Operational Due Diligence The operational due diligence process has continued to evolve significantly since the financial crisis. With the seemingly unending political uncertainty and market volatility, there is now an even greater focus by investors on ODD. Requirements now include increased reporting and transparency, robustness of corporate governance and a culture of compliance. AIMA has long led the way in this field, and its ODD questionnaire is the market standard. With the release of AIMAs updated questionnaire, what better time to discuss the shifting focus of investors in this key hurdle to securing institutional investors
