As Brexit draws near, UK fund managers are getting nervous about the very real possibility that they will lose the ability to access EU investors.
There is a simple solution, however. By establishing a base in an EU jurisdiction, market access can be guaranteed.
For some larger managers, opening a subsidiary in the EU is an option. For the bulk of the market, however, the best way is to use a specialist EU third-party management solution.
This solution has a lot of advantages over establishing a base in the EU – it is cost effective, more efficient and it is tried-and-tested. Furthermore, it works in other parts of the world too.
With the Brexit clock ticking, there’s no doubt that third-party management services look set to be the mainstream solution for fund managers.
