City and Financial Global’s landmark conference represents a unique opportunity for those at the forefront of the asset management community to gain insights into best practice in complying with the new regulatory standards. We are delighted to welcome Nick Miller, Head of Asset Management, Financial Conduct Authority as our keynote speaker. He will outline the FCA’s agenda for reform and their expectations for the asset management industry as a whole. Our panel of expert speakers will also provide practical insights into an array of challenges facing asset managers, such as  how culture and conduct has developed as a key compliance issue; the drive towards increasing engagement and transparency; improving disclosure on fees particularly in relation to active and passive funds; choice and use of benchmarks; and credible performance reporting. Asset managers will also be profoundly affected by coming within the ambit of the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) this December, as well as by the ongoing turmoil which surrounds Brexit.
Attending this Summit will enable you to drill down into the implications of these radical events for your firm and provide you with practical tools and strategies to ensure you are at the vanguard of regulatory compliance.

Featured Testimonials

“We’ve worked with the C&F team on many conferences relating to accountability, the team here are exceptionally good at organising events. A broad and diverse mix of delegates and that’s of most interest because that’s why people come to conferences; to peer to peer network and talk, you have to have enough people of the right calibre in the room, and that’s what City & Financial do differently to other conference organisers”.
Carl Redfern, Compliance Director, Redland Business Solutions Ltd
“Interesting discussion around Brexit and the implications for the energy sector. I think it’s got a excellent range of speakers from academia, politicians as well as industry speakers, which helps getting that spread”.

“Also if you look at the delegate list, it’s great for networking to see the wide range of delegates from across the UK who are in attendance”.

Lawrence Slade, Chief Executive, Energy UK
“As ever with City week it’s a fantastic gathering of senior people from across the industry talking about the key issues that we need to deal with as practitioners looking at both where the opportunities for the industry are, what the challenges are that we need to meet, but also being able to talk to policy makers, with regulators and with others to share our experiences, our perspectives and our thoughts to look forward to the future”.
Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK
“It’s the largest Brexit conference I’ve seen for at least two years, and I think that it’s a very great mix of people; in terms of seniority and in terms of spread and geographically, because it’s not just people from London, some people are coming from outside (London)”.
Jonathan Herbst, Partner and Global Head of Financial Services, Norton Rose Fulbright
“I would like to say a massive thanks @cfconferences for pulling together so many experts for the event yesterday. Felt like the Glastonbury of Conduct with headline acts, great content and sell-out crowd. Plenty of content for us to go away and act on our journey to regain trust”.
Robert Longmuir, Client Governance, Aberdeen Standard Investments
“I think City & Financial events, certainly in the Brexit sphere are the go to event”.

“I can’t say very much about the other ones, because if I’m completely honest, I don’t go to any other ones, this is the go to conference each year”.
