The regulatory landscape for UK funds is beginning to shift. In its Spring 2020 Budget, the UK government stated that it will "undertake a review of the UK’s funds regime during 2020. This will cover direct and indirect tax, as well as relevant areas of regulation, with a view to considering the case for policy changes".
Melville Rodrigues has been actively involved in lobbying for the Professional Investor Fund or “PIF”. The PIF aims to fill a gap in the UK's fund offering for professional investors in comparison to that offered by international competitors. Melville will explain the merits of the PIF.
Melville helps lead the UK Funds Practice for Ocorian, who provide administration and fiduciary services to funds and corporates as well as institutional and private investors.
This webinar session will be chaired by Barry Stimpson, Partner at Womble Bond Dickinson.
