ILA Conducting Officer Forum with special guest Marco Zwick
The ILA Conducting Officer Forum was established over a decade ago and has grown from a small group of Conducting Officers to a large diverse group covering a varied range of IFMs (UCITS Management Companies and AIFMs) including in-house and third party IFMs. The Forum offers the opportunity to share ideas and have an open discussion on industry trends, regulation and evolving best market practice. This creates a good opportunity to network and share ideas with fellow Conducting Officers in an informal manner without minutes or active working groups.
Any topics that may give rise to the need for guidance papers or other publications will be fed into a working group within ILA or one of the other industry associations as is deemed most appropriate. The Forum also works in close collaboration with the ALFI Fund Governance Forum and the ALFI Management Company Committee.
This last Conducting Officer Forum for this year features a special guest, Marco Zwick, Director of the CSSF, who will be sharing industry and regulatory updates directly from the CSSF:
1. Observations of the CSSF IFM reviews:
Areas where things are going well and areas of concern
On-sight examinations: key findings, themes and trends
2. CSSF move to more questionnaire based information gathering:
Timing of Long Form Report circular and implementation
Future questionnaires envisaged
3. The regulatory agenda for 2022 (new circulars, regulations and laws)
4. Feedback on the CSSF AML workshop: 2021 AML/CFT Virtual Conference dedicated to AML/CFT Supervision in the Luxembourg Collective Investment Sector
5. Initiatives to improve efficiency of submitting information to CSSF - improving on e-desk and e-filing
For the full agenda of the Forum, please refer to the agenda section that will be updated shortly.
We would be pleased if you join us in these discussions and share your views. If there are any specific topics you would like to discuss during this Forum with Marco Zwick or have any questions in advance, please contact Emily Ball (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please feel free to share this event among fellow Conducting Officers.
The target audience for this Forum is appointed Conducting & Compliance Officers and Responsable du Contrôle du respect des obligations (RCs). Should you wish to be on the distribution list for the monthly CO Forum, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
The rules of the Forum foresee that one delegate only for each ManCo or participating entity can be present at the debate in order to have a larger diversity in the group.
