FIRESIDE CHAT: Fund Regulation Round-Up – What’s changing in 2024 and how to get ahead

In 2023 we saw a plethora of changes in fund regulation with asset managers and fund distributors struggling to keep up with the ever-evolving regulatory demands.

But what will the regulatory landscape look like for funds in 2024?

Join FE fundinfo’s Regulation Manager, Mikkel Bates, as we delve into the state of fund regulation, what’s changing and how to get ahead in your preparations to combat regulatory oversight and increasing disclosure requirements.

In this webinar we will cover:

  • The latest developments in sustainable taxonomies and disclosures across Europe, the United Kingdom, and Asia-Pacific;
  • Regulatory responses to combat greenwashing (UK SDR and Investment Labels);
  • Evolution of corporate sustainability disclosures (TCFD vs ISSB vs ESRS);
  • Better consumer protection (EU Retail Investment Strategy and UK Retail Disclosure Framework)

And much more!
