Buy-side focus


June 6, 2018

The partners of the Norton Rose Fulbright LLP financial services team invite you to their latest breakfast briefing.

Our breakfast briefings provide insight, practical knowledge and information, and act as a forum for sharing views and advice.

The briefings are likely to be of particular value to senior and middle management within financial institutions with responsibility for compliance, capital markets, investment management, legal, risk and trading.


Historically the regulatory focus has been on large banks following the 2008 global financial crisis but there has been a real shift in recent years towards buy-side firms. Buy-side firms are facing rigorous regulatory scrutiny with emerging proposals from EU regulators including the AIFMD review, PRIIPs and the Omnibus Regulation. Closer to home the FCA has also focussed on the buy-side, publishing the first set of remedies outlined in its asset management market study which include measures to improve governance such as strengthening obligations to act in the best interests of investors and changes to existing guidance to enable investors to move into better value share classes. At the same time the FCA has published a consultation paper for the second set of remedies on fund objectives, benchmarks and other issues.

  • Upcoming changes to the AIFMD and UCITS regimes
  • The FCA asset management market study one year on
  • Scrutiny of fees
  • Brexit and the delegation model


The briefings count towards SRA continuing competence. There is no charge for attending.


The briefings will be recorded via webcast and are available after the briefing.
