Course description

UCITS Funds Training

This highly practical 1 day course conducted by a senior expert with over 20 years of experience, covers the whole UCITS framework and is intended to provide participants with the appropriate knowledge and skills to set up and manage UCITS funds.

All aspects of UCITS fund management and operations are covered with particular emphasis on risk management of all funds operations. You will learn about setting up and managing UCITS Funds in different jurisdictions, EU passporting, marketing, as well as fund governance and oversight.

The program includes case studies on pricing errors, investment breaches, failures of risk controls and of fund governance. We will also examine the areas of interest to regulators when reviewing funds and fund managers to help meet compliance requirements.
