1 Day Course: UCITS Fund Training -

The "UCITS Fund Training" training has been added to's offering.

This highly practical 1 day course covers the whole UCITS framework with a particular focus on the latest developments in UCITS funds. As a result of the Madoff fraud and the Lehman Brothers (News - Alert) default, the European Commission have issued the UCITS V Directive, which has a major impact on managers and depositaries in terms of remuneration and reporting requirements. All these changes will be covered in detail.

This one day workshop is intended to provide staff with the appropriate knowledge and skills to set up and manage UCITS funds. The course assumes limited previous knowledge of funds. All aspects of UCITS fund management and operations are covered with particular emphasis on high risk areas in operations. The programme includes case studies on pricing errors, investment breaches, failures of risk controls and of fund governance. We will also examine in more detail particular concerns of the regultors when reviewing fund managers to help you become fully aware of all the compliance requirements.
