For the sixth year running, Deloitte and Elvinger Hoss Prussen—with the support of FT Live—will organise their popular Cross-Border Distribution Conference on Tuesday 30 January. The conference, which each year attracts more than 600 registrations, has grown in importance over the years and is now considered to be one of the main annual forums where fund professionals get together to learn and share perspectives and news concerning their industry.

The conference offers a full-day programme, combining keynote speeches by renowned industry figures, relevant panel discussions during which different views will be expressed, and important networking opportunities. This year again, the list of speakers includes more than 25 senior industry professionals, government officials, industry associations, and representatives of the regulators.

This year’s edition will take a deep dive into the ongoing changes facing the fund industry. Speakers and participants alike will consider how to embrace change and harness innovation and new thinking to create value for investors and asset managers. To set the scene, Sven Gentner, head of Unit for Asset Management DG Fisma at the European Commission, will give an update on the Commission’s position with regard to the ongoing integration of capital markets across the European Union.

In a business environment shaped by political uncertainty and disruptive technologies, the conference looks at how asset managers can prepare for the changes ahead. The increased level of regulation and supervision is only one of the aspects affecting the traditional role of asset managers and fund distributors; the persistent low-yield environment and the evolving demographics of the investor base are other important factors. The conference will highlight the benefits and downsides of strategies focusing on making incremental changes to existing product offerings, as robo-advice is gaining traction and digital is changing the customer experience as well as its expectations.

A fund industry forum worthy of its name cannot ignore Brexit and the ongoing political negotiations and market speculations. This is why this year’s conference will offer a daring panel—fronted by Gina Miller—that will discuss who the likely winners and losers of Brexit are, and how the fund industry can best prepare for its impact. Don’t miss out on the 6th Cross-Border Distribution Conference!      

The Cross-Border Distribution Conference 2018 is sponsored by Capital Group, Carne, Kurtosys, State Street, F2C, Foley, Global Fund Analytics, and Northern Trust. Paperjam is the media sponsor of the conference.
