In May 2018 the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into force, bringing significant implications for all organisations that process data belonging to EU residents. Investment managers that employ EU residents or have investors that are EU residents will have to comply with the new legislation regardless of whether the firm is based within the EU or not.
GDPR introduces a number of requirements relating to how personal data is collected, stored and processed as well as the threat of fines of up to 4% of a firm’s global turnover.

They will discuss typical investment scenarios and workflows to illustrate where GDPR is relevant and some of the changes managers will need to implement to become compliant.
