Breakfast briefing - Substance in governance for alternative investment funds: a three-dimensional approach
ILA would like to invite directors and conducting officers to this Substance in Governance Seminar on 14 February 2017 to hear an expert panel on the most fundamental governance structuring considerations for alternative investment funds post AIFM Directive implementation.

The format of the event is as follows:
  • 08.30 Registration and welcome coffee
  • 08.45 Introduction: Michael Hornsby, Partner EMEIA Real Estate Funds Leader at EY
  • 08.50 Panel discussion: Substance in Governance, a three dimensional analysis

    The panel will present and examine the three fundamental dimensions of sound governance structuring and implementation for Luxembourg AIF comparing the most relevant legal, regulatory and tax constraints that must be taken into consideration in a cross-border AIF management context.

    The substance concept is at the core of the European and Luxembourg AIF management industry. While substance used to be considered for tax purposes only, directors must now also know what substance means from a legal and regulatory point of view.

    The substance and governance concepts are multi-faceted and intertwined. Building the leading AIF domicile in Europe requires a sound understanding of the interaction of the legal, regulatory and tax requirements and constraints in 2017 and beyond

  • 09:45 Q&A session
  • 10.00 Conclusion & Networking coffee

This timely Breakfast Briefing will be of interest to directors and conducting officers of EU AIFMs and Luxembourg AIF and will give you the opportunity to present your thoughts or questions, and to meet personally with the speakers and fellow participants.
