UCITS and AIFs: ready to meet future investor needs?
The panel put the future of UCITS into perspective, reflecting on the reasons of its worldwide success and the conditions that need to be in place to preserve its attractiveness going forward. Panellists also considered whether the current range of EU fund vehicles (UCITS, AIFs, ELTIFs, …) remains adequate to meet investors’ needs and discussed what improvements may be required to meet future investor demands.
