Until the event on

4 June 2019

The ALFI TA & Distribution Operations Forum the annual meeting of the leading TA and Distribution Operations community, bringing together global transfer agents, distributors and fund service providers is only a few days away.

Changing expectations

With a new generation of consumers, there are changing expectations out there. The fund industry must meet new demands. During the conference sessions, millennials’ preferred products and investment channels will be subject to the scrutiny of our experts.

FinTech and process automation play a huge role in this. Operating models are in a transformation phase and transfer agency is evolving. Before this backdrop, what will determine success? Find out what TA and distribution professionals in Luxembourg have identified as the drivers.

Changing regulations

The impact of legal and regulatory developments on TA and distribution operations is paramount, and there is continuous movement in this area. Luxembourg has recently passed its law on distributed ledger technology (DLT). What does this mean − what tools are at a transfer agent’s disposal? What does state-of-the-art handling of AML/KYC look like? Are you up to speed regarding the new register of beneficial owners, and what role does communication play in your AML/KYC efforts? The impact of GDPR on TA operations will also be examined.

A separate session will look at the industry trends around costs, fees and charges.

Join the ALFI TA & Distribution Operations Forum to get a topical overview of transfer agency and distribution operations. Find out what the hot topics are this summer when the experts present recent surveys as well as the activity of the ALFI TADO Working Group.
