This certificated, three-day training focuses on regulation affecting private equity including the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive and standards in areas such as fundraising, fund marketing, governance and financial crime.
Grounded in Invest Europe Handbook of Professional Standards and designed by Invest Europe Professional Standards and Tax, Legal & Regulatory Committees, the course is led by industry experts. The course will help both European and non-European fund managers gain a clear understanding of the EU and international regulatory frameworks in which they operate.

After the 2008 financial crisis, European policymakers committed to ensuring that no sector or product was out of the scope of financial market regulation. The whole private equity industry - GPs and funds, LPs and investments, was and continues to be affected by the resulting legislation. It is crucial that fund managers are well-informed about what this means for them, their firms and their investors.
As the industry's representative in Brussels, Invest Europe is at the forefront of the debate over new and existing EU regulation and is ideally placed to provide this indispensable training.
The course covers:
Private equity practitioners with both operational knowledge and an understanding of the investment process, who want to expand their knowledge of changing European laws and regulations. Non-EU managers seeking to market into Europe will benefit from the regulatory training, especially looking into passporting.
The course will attract a diverse group of participants including Partners, CFOs, COOs, Compliance Officers, Investor Relations/Fundraising teams, Risk Managers, Portfolio Managers, and General Counsel.
