We were delighted to host an 'AIFMD Depositary breakfast briefing' last Thursday in The Westin Hotel.
Any seminar is only as good as it's speakers and we were lucky to have three great speakers on the day. A special thanks to Sarah O'Sullivan of Arthur Cox, Shane Brett of Global Perspectives and Cian O'Connor of PwC for supporting the event.
The event covered AIFMD with a specific focus on the Depositary function. Sarah set out the current legislative state of play and how the Directive relates to Depositaries. Shane did a super job of covering the operational implications with plenty of practical advice and insight. Cian provided a timely reminder around risk and compliance, an area that hasn't gotten the attention it deserves to date.
A special thanks from myself and Padraig to Mark and Ruth who's unnoticed work made the event run smoothly. Finally a big thanks to Sinead, Dominic and the rest of the staff at The Westin Hotel, the banking hall is truly a remarkable room.
