What will you gain from this independent investment risk oversight workshop

This workshop will provide delegates with an understanding of how to set up / enhance and operate an independent investment risk oversight function under the UCITS and AIFMD directive requirements.

Drawing on thirty years of experience in financial services, and nearly twenty years in risk management, the workshop leader will share the knowledge he has gained from hands-on experience of independent investment risk oversight.

Attend to enhance your knowledge and skills in:

  • Demonstrating how independent risk oversight can add value to the business, rather than being a regulatory overhead provide guidance on how to set-up and operate such a function

  • Delivering a clear, structured template for the risk oversight information that should be provided to management companies and their associated boards, a format that can also be used to supplement the existing performance reports provided to clients holding segregated mandates

  • Providing guidance on how to document the risk management process so that it can be used both as a regulatory submission and as a day-to-day reference guide for the organisation.
