2022 Asset Management Review | The UK & EU

Most of us would call the past few years turbulent, to say the least. With The UK leaving European Union back in 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic starting shortly after and the Russian invasion still ongoing, the market is as unpredictable as ever. Needless to say, we know how hard it is to keep up with constantly changing regulations and how painful it is to miss a deadline only to be rewarded with a fine. 


To make your life a little bit easier, we’ve gathered a list of reports and links that will be helpful in 2022 in regards to news on regulations or requirements within the asset management sector.
