As a consequence of our unprecedented times, we have brought the annual EY Funds Forum event online. The first virtual EY Funds Forum will take place on Tuesday, 1 December from 10am – 11.40am. Our theme “Reframing the future” looks to the future of the industry with a focus on Regulation. We have a fantastic line up of speakers from The European Commission, Central Bank of Ireland, BNY Mellon, FundRock and Legal & General Investment Management. For a full list of speakers and bios please click here.

To give us an outlook on European Regulation, I am pleased to announce Sean Berrigan, Director-General, European Commission, DG FISMA – European Perspective as one of our keynote speakers. Colm Kincaid, Director, Securities and Markets Supervision, Central Bank of Ireland will then give us a local perspective on Regulation.

Our panel “Reframing the Future by embracing the now” will discuss the direction of travel set by ESMA and regulatory authorities and what might influence the future of the industry. There will be a focus on three key topics:

  • CP86 – substance and delegation
  • Leverage and liquidity
  • Investor outcomes – value for money, ESG and product appropriateness
