Last week, 27th of May, we hosted a webinar with a panel of industry experts comparing Ireland and Luxembourg as domiciles for establishing a fund in Europe.
During the webinar, expert panellists discussed a wide range of related topics including the size of the European market, the advantages of having a European fund, distribution, investor appetite, fund structures, and the legal and practical considerations for Managers who decide to launch a European fund.
The webinar was hosted by Nicola Cowman, Director, Carne Group with guest speakers Lindsay Trapp, Senior Associate at Dechert LLP and Brian McMahon, Managing Director & Global Head, Alternatives Sales at BNY Mellon. They were joined by Carne’s Des Fullam, Group Chief Product & Regulatory Officer, and Aymeric Lechartier, Managing Director.
There was huge interest in the topic with over 500 registering to attend as well as great engagement through audience questions and polls.
