Malta in a Post Brexit World

Funds Event

Event Overview

Picking the right EU jurisdiction now that Brexit has been unleashed is going to be crucial, not just for start-up managers but established managers in the UK who will need a “Plan B” to ensure continued use of passporting rights to distribute their funds to EU investors.

This is likely to prove beneficial for EU jurisdictions, including Malta, which continues to experience growth of its funds industry, not just on the fund licensing side but, increasingly, the number of AIFMs being set up on the island.

The “Guide to Malta” morning event will showcase the jurisdiction over the course of three distinct panel sessions to give delegates a clear sense of what Malta can offer and why it should be regarded as a viable solution to EU fund structuring and distribution.

The event will run from 8.30am to 12:30 on May 23rd, 2018 and will be hosted at the Reform Club, Pall Mall, London.
