Funds Distribution: Can It Become Global?

Funds Distribution: Can It Become Global?

The International Funds Summit & Expo returns for the 8th time on 7-8 November 2022 at Hilton Nicosia. Organised by the Cyprus Investment Funds Association (CIFA), Invest Cyprus and IMH, this premier peer-to-peer event brings together more than 500 leading fund specialists from across the world to discuss the evolving regulatory and competitive landscape in the global asset management sector.

One of the sessions at the two-day Summit is the Global Distribution/Cross-Border Distribution Stage. Leading experts will discuss recent trends and the future of funds distribution, exploring whether distribution can really become global, how technology is transforming distribution, and what digital clients and investors really want.

Among those on the session are Dr. Stefan Steadter (Counsel, Arendt & Medernach), Edward Glyn (Managing Director & Head of Global Markets, Calastone), Karolina Gosz-Renzi (Investment Funds Products Sales Manager, Clearstream), Shelley Yang (Co-Founder and CEO, InvesTAO), and Stefano Bonetti (Deputy Country Manager Italy & Senior Sales and Relationship Manager, MFEX by Euroclear).

Dr. Stefan Steadter will discuss access to Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) for retail investors. He will explain that the European Long-Term Investment Fund (ELTIF) is the only vehicle that grants access to a true cross-border distribution passport, and that the ELTIF 2.0 and the semi-professional investor status under the AIFMD 2 may close the EU-level market gap for retail AIFs.

Edward Glyn will talk about how to deliver the right product for investors now and over the next five years. He will suggest that firms must think about how to turn data into an advantage, create platforms for innovation in distribution and product development, and move to accommodate new digital assets such as tokenized funds.

Karolina Gosz–Renzi will focus on future trends in funds distribution and examine the importance of data in understanding clients and in adjusting the offering and introducing targeted sales techniques. She will also discuss FinTechs, new technology and AI/robotics in the back-office.

The Summit will be conducted in English and full participation at the Summit corresponds to up to 8 CPD units. For more information regarding the event, click here.

The Summit is addressed to senior finance, investment professionals and asset managers in Cyprus, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the USA, who work in Investment Fund companies, Asset Management companies, Accounting, Audit and Tax Advisory firms, Investment Banks and other financial institutions, Private Equity firms, Venture Capital firms, Family Offices, Insurance companies, Pension Funds, Endowment Trusts and Sovereign Wealth Funds.
