Mirror mirror on the wall, how will PE fare after the last Brexit call
The wait for the fast-approaching 31 December deadline has become a real rollercoaster ride for many players within the PE/VC (and wider alternative investments) industry. With no clear indication as to what the new UK-EU relationship will look like as of 1 January 2021, the industry is bracing itself for various changes in the way cross-border UK to EU and EU to UK investments will be made possible by fund managers and their investors in light of anticipated new regulations and legislation, such as the new Cross-Border Distribution Directive.
While we have no crystal ball allowing us to get clear-cut answers to these Brexit unknowns, we do have a line-up of experts and specialists who have followed the situation closely and who will be sharing their insights as they apply to the industry.
On the agenda: A look at the industry and where it stands, as well as the different scenarios andrange of issues that both fund managers and investors may imminently face, with a look at potential fund platform operating models and solutions, including in respect of Luxembourg vehicles.
