Navigating the top Shareholding Disclosure challenges
Navigating the top Shareholding Disclosure challenges 

As fund inflows reach the highest level in four years, global equity funds continue to dominate proceedings. At the same time, the top challenge these funds face is not having a good understanding of local legislation, regulation and reporting requirements - potentially exposing them to financial, legal, and reputational risks. In many jurisdictions, consequences of non-compliance can include fines, suspension of trade, and sometimes even criminal prosecution.
Watch this webinar to hear from Refinitiv and FundApps experts about a general overview of the industry and to learn about:
  • What are the latest trends in the investment landscape?
  • What managers need to consider when entering new markets?
  • How to comply with shareholding disclosure requirements?
  • What challenges firms are facing in managing data and how to address them?
  • What are the complexities with shareholding disclosure obligations in multiple jurisdictions?
Looking at country-specific examples, we’ll examine why some jurisdictions are more complex than others and the continuing need to stay on top of updates and new statutes to ensure consistency across processes and standards.
