AIMA’s 2021 Global Policy & Regulatory Forum, taking place virtually, will offer participants an unparalleled insight into key themes in policymaking and supervision relevant to the hedge fund community. Over the course of the half-day event, attendees will hear from industry practitioners and policymakers, gaining an in-depth perspective on how they should be thinking about the regulatory environment in the coming months and years. It will cover developments relating to AIFMD, sustainable finance and ESG, short-selling, market structure and more besides. The event will be fully interactive, with opportunities to ask questions of speakers.

Condensed to one half-day, the Forum will feature a mix of panel discussions, interviews and briefing sessions from policymakers and industry experts. The 2020 virtual instalment saw over 660 registrations join from 23 different countries. We welcomed 40 speakers from across the globe to participate and share their industry insight and to engage with the audience.
