Event Overview

FinanceMalta in collaboration with HFM and supported by Hedge Fund Association, GANADO Advocates, Alter Domus and EY, welcome you to our latest workshop, aimed at supporting US hedge fund managers seeking to select a European fund domicile, or exploring the European fund environment, as part of their next venture.

This workshop will comprise of two roundtable sessions; the first will debate the pros and cons of launching a fund through several different major European fund structures. Experts will offer insights into the regulatory and reporting requirements of each vehicle and offer tips on how to perform effective due diligence and structuring in the region they are seeking to enter.

Our second roundtable topic will give delegates a deep dive into the Maltese fund environment – our speakers will offer advice on the costs and process involved in setting up in Malta, and give an update on the local regulatory sphere, including the hot topic of blockchain – a timely topic given the legal framework around the Distribution Ledger Technology, ICOs and Virtual Currencies, which was unveiled last month.
