IOB Masterclass – The Risk Functions within Fund Management Companies – Starting Tuesday, 27 January
Friday, 27 January 2023
IOB are delighted to announce a new masterclass on the Risk Functions within Fund Management Companies will be delivered online over one evening a week for six weeks from 4pm to 7pm starting next Tuesday, 31 January.
Fund Management Companies are required to have a permanent risk management function as a central component of a risk management system. The risk management function and policy must cover all risks, including operational and fund related risks. A key objective behind the detailed rules on risk management is related to the obligation for Fund Management Companies to give primacy to the interests of investors at all times.
Those responsible for the implementation of the risk management function and establishing risk management policies must have a good understanding of the legal and regulatory requirements related to the topic, to include the why and the how in that context.
Who is this masterclass for?
The masterclass will be particularly relevant to Designated Persons for Operational Risk and Designated Persons for Fund Risk and those who support Designated Persons in those roles. It is also very relevant to Directors of Funds and Directors of ManCos (UCITS ManCos and AIFMs), senior management and staff within ManCos and all other industry professionals within Fund Service Providers.
