Press release from: Fleming Europe

3rd Annual Asset & Fund Management
May 23 - 24. 2013, Istanbul, Turkey

According to a survey on priorities and challenges facing the global asset management community, recently published by French company Linedata, asset managers and hedge funds are currently being driven into the same space. And the responsible party is regulation.

According to the company's product manager for Northern Europe, Matt Gibbs, much of the new regulation relates to multiple asset classes. On one hand, this has led asset managers to diversify and, on the other, hedge funds, to revert to their more traditionalist roots.

Gibbs explained that as both sides consider how to cope with regulations such as UCITS (Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities) or AIFMD (Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive), they are finding themselves in the same business space. Whilst hedge funds are becoming more traditional in their concerns, asset managers are moving towards a larger diversity in assets covered, and managing them in a hedge-like way.

Another outcome of the survey is that regulation can still be found among the top concerns for the buy side. Yet according to Gibbs, it's not the regulation as such that causes concern, but unannounced regulations coming out of the blue, and thus not leaving enough time to cope with them.

Among other topics, asset management and hedge funds will be the key focus of Fleming Europe's 3rd Annual Asset & Fund Management conference, which will take place on May 23 – 24, 2013 in Istanbul.

Meet – and listen to – the 11 confirmed C-level executives from top asset management companies who will discuss portfolio optimization, fixed income market focus and alternative asset classes. Get deeper insight into equity asset management, Forex and real estate as alternative asset classes. Best asset and fund management strategies in the CEE, SEE & CIS region are on the program as well.

As a special bonus, the program features a case study on Swedbank Pension Fund K3 – the best pension fund in CEE (IPE, 2012). Come, learn from the best.
