Boston Seminar

*This event has been CANCELLED* 

Unfortunately due to the ongoing weather warning in the Boston area, we have taken the decision to cancel our seminar planned for tomorrow morning. We regret any inconvenience this decision has caused but it has been taken with the best interest and well-being of our all our speakers and delegates who have to travel. We will re-arrange the seminar for later in the year.


This seminar will include thought provoking and informative updates and panel discussions from respected industry experts on:

  • Trends in global fund distribution
  • Regulatory updates
  • Brexit
  • FinTech and the asset management industry

A structured and wide-ranging discussion on the ongoing changes in the European regulatory environment which impact on US managers will be a significant feature of the seminar.

Agenda details are available further below.
