Investment Management

The changing regulatory landscape, outsourcing of back-office functions, and talent retention are just some of the issues currently on the agenda for investment managers.

How do you make sense of the current market – and how can you turn that into profitability and competitive advantage?

At Deloitte we recognise there are no “one-size-fits-all” solutions. Our clients range from hedge funds and private wealth managers to bank-owned investment managers and state and sovereign wealth funds. In each case we apply our sector expertise to help them to address the critical issues that face their particular business.

  • AIFMD Offshore Update - Annual Report considerations for this reporting cycle
    With the AIFMD implementation date of July 2014 quickly approaching, this briefing note looks at the Directive’s annual report disclosure requirements, some which need to be considered in the 2013 year-end financial statements.
