May 9,2017 / News / Cape Town Seminar

Please join us for a discussion around the latest developments in fund regulation in South Africa and major international fund jurisdictions.

Topics include:

  • The Financial Sector Regulation Bill which is currently under consideration by the National Council of Provinces as well as the Retail Distribution Review.
  • Amendments to the Luxembourg laws for alternative investment funds (the 2016 law on reserved alternative investment funds).
  • Plans for the two top fund jurisdictions, the BVI and the Cayman Islands, to introduce AIFMD opt-in regimes designed to allow Caribbean managers to take advantage of third-country passporting rights in the European Union.
  • Updates to corporate laws in the Cayman Islands and BVI – notably the introduction of a new Limited Liability Companies Law in the Cayman Island and plans to update the BVI Partnership Act later this year.
