The Investment Management Institute 2021 is taking a fresh look at significant business, legal, and regulatory developments in the investment management area over the past year. Take an in-depth look at the priorities of the SEC and what lies ahead for the commission, as well as lessons learned from recent litigation and enforcement efforts.
Our faculty of experts will examine new areas of focus for the SEC, such as ESG and cryptocurrencies, implications of the new Division of Examinations, and the issues of the day for fund directors and trustees. Attendees of this year's program will also have the opportunity to learn about the global themes in investment management such as Brexit implications on how funds are managed, the ever-changing world of privacy regulations, and other matters attorneys are facing in a new era of global asset management.
An additional segment was added to the agenda this year to highlight asset management business trends in the U.S. of which attorneys should be aware.
