Hedge funds were declared collective investment schemes under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, 2002 (CISCA) in 2015.
This course offers a big picture overview of both CISCA and the hedge fund regulations, from someone who has worked as a legal advisor in both industries. Although it is law focused, the course reflects a deep understanding of industry practice and is highly interactive and practical, promoting better compliance with the new regulatory regime. It also offers a glimpse into the future legal developments that will impact the industry, including an introduction to the twin peaks regulatory regime and the CoFI Bill.
Join us for a six-hour course, held over three days, which will deepen your understanding of CISCA and hedge fund regulations.
Date: 17 to 19 May 2021, 15:00 to 17:00 - SAST
