IMAS Lunchtime Talk Series: Demystifying the How's and What's of Retail Fund Distribution in Europe

Many asset managers in Singapore and Asia have been looking beyond their regional borders to raise new assets, and are now increasingly interested in building and expanding their footprints into Europe, thanks to the European UCITS funds passport which facilitates the access to multiple markets. Europe is a large mature market, and while European retail and institutional investors alike are showing increasing interest in allocating assets to Asia, understanding how fund distribution in Europe works can be mind-boggling. PwC Luxembourg and BNP Paribas Luxembourg are pleased to offer insights into the myriad workings of the European fund distribution regime to help simplify the understanding of fund managers seeking to tap this market. The 75-minute briefing will cover:

  • Overview of UCITS distribution in Europe
  • Product registration process post-UCITS IV
  • Administration and documentation (KIID etc), timing and costs
  • Distribution channels and models - what exists and what works?
  • Building the network - paying agents, transfer agents and distribution agents in Europe
