Challenges facing the market
Investment fund activity is subject to more rules and regulations than ever before, in the UK and overseas.
Once considered under regulated, the industry is now affected by a myriad of regulations and a swing back towards self-regulation based on a sense of responsibility is possible in the future. Devising the right strategy to support the delivery of your strategic goals can be both complex and challenging. You need advisers who are well versed in the detail, agile at times of change, whilst also understanding the mood of policymakers to explain how this might affect your investment funds strategy in the future.
Britain’s plans to exit the EU will inevitably bring disruption for the investment funds marketplace.
Fund managers, as well as individual and corporate investors and the businesses they are investing in, must prepare for this. With increased regulation coming from Europe, cross-border investments may well be put under further scrutiny and strain; and improving investor confidence must remain a priority. Fund managers and investors alike must be clear about where risks lie in their portfolios and proactively plan to mitigate them.
In uncertain times, investor confidence can come under pressure and this can impact the entire marketplace.
Investors may need to rethink their investment strategy, exploring ways to maintain capital at reduced risk. Considering the investor audience carefully with intermediaries and investors or reviewing the deal flow if you’re raising money with investment restrictions will help protect investor confidence and maintain good relations.
