Wednesday webinar at one: The global research revolution - What you need to know and do

Wednesday 10 April 2024 | 13:00 - 13:40 | Webinar

After nearly a decade of Trans-Atlantic research regulatory divergence (MiFID II), upcoming adjustments in both the UK and EU research frameworks suggest a possible shift towards a unified global research model. 

There are both substantial risks and opportunities. 

With new UK research funding rules in place by the end of June 2024 (at the latest), market participants need to start thinking about what are the risks?  How will asset owners react?  What needs to change in the asset managers’ research process, and what are the implications for the research market overall? 

Join Neil Scarth, Frost Consulting as he investigates these risks and opportunities, and how UK/EU managers can take advantage of re-regulation by fashioning a more sustainable research funding framework that: 

- Places them on equal footing with US managers
- Reduces market-related risks in research funding
- Improves profitability
- Underpins their ESG franchises 

Registration: 12:55
Event: 13:00 - 13:40
