Join HFM for our next Asia Breakfast Briefing, a free to attend event, held exclusively for named HFM members and trialists.HFM members events

Featuring a panel-led discussion and informal networking, the briefing is an excellent opportunity to update your knowledge, whilst meeting with your industry peers and connecting with new business contacts.

Topic:

Mifid II: The road to compliance and the impact on Asia’s hedge fund industry

Discussion points include:

– The EU’s Mifid II directive is having a direct and indirect impact on many Asia-based managers. Who is going to be impacted and how? What does this mean practically for firms?
– How have managers been negotiating research pricing with investment banks and other research vendors and what will your peers be paying for research? How much should it cost to buy in specific tech, IT, reporting, and recording services? What can be done in-house? What options are available?
– How are banks operating in Asia being impacted by Mifid II and what might this mean for managers in the region?
– Are investors likely to want the same Mifid II standards around research payments, best execution, and transparency to be adopted by managers globally over time? How strongly might investors push for such an approach in Asia? Will Mifid II simply become best practice globally? Will all investors and regulators eventually expect these standards?
