Irish Funds Member and Event Update
New member welcome
A warm welcome to our most recent new members Clearstream, Eversheds Sutherland, First State Investments, Simmons & Simmons, and Sparkasse Bank Malta. We now represent 136 member companies from across the funds industry and appreciate your continuing support. See below a breakdown of our membership.
Two new working groups created
Having reached out to members for expressions of interest and nominations for involvement, we are currently constituting an Internal Audit Working Group and a Member Engagement Working Group. Given that most of our other Working Groups have only been up and running 12 months, we will start looking at the process to refresh them in Q1 2019.
Member engagement lunches
With the conclusion of the summer we have re-started this popular initiative and continue to see strong interest in these networking and information sharing events with 50 firms already confirmed to take part over the next 7 months. These lunches are an opportunity to discuss matters important to you and to get additional detail on our current priorities. For more information or to attend a lunch, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Upcoming technical briefings
We are currently in early stage planning for a series of Q4 Technical Briefings. These 1-2 hour sessions, typically held in Chartered Accountants House and streamed for members based overseas, are another valuable source of information and insight for members. More information will follow in the coming weeks.
Upcoming events and sponsorship opportunities for 2019
We are back in the UK, the US and Asia this autumn in our ongoing efforts to support managers and promote Irish funds across the globe. For more information or to register for any of our events, visit www.irishfunds.ie/events. We will release our 2019 events sponsorship opportunities on Monday, 8 October. This is an opportunity to maximise your brand’s visibility to a global audience. Our experience from recent years is that the available sponsorship slots go quickly – we deal with them on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any questions, please contact David Shirley at email@example.com or on +353 1 6753205 for more information.
Member Portal Resource

If you or your colleagues do not currently have access to this important information resource, you can register at https://memberportal.irishfunds.ie/.
