Over the last decade the fund industry has enjoyed consistent and rapid expansion in terms of the amount of cross-border funds and their registrations. Despite a recent decline, the overall numbers show the popularity of these funds continues across the world.

Covid-19 has caused chaos to financial markets globally. Despite the challenges of 2020 managers are still looking to market and distribute their products globally, with new hot spots for distribution opening up. Along with the obstacles that a global pandemic creates, markets are also facing a volatile geo-political environment with Brexit and a new US Administration which of course has and will have implications for the marketing and distribution of funds.

The Cross-Border Distribution Conference 2021 will be the 9th Annual event. This event has become an unmissable gathering for regulators, leading asset managers and experts to address key distribution industry issues. Traditionally held in Luxembourg, given the global circumstances the 2021 conference will be brought to you virtually.
