The Investment Management Association has today published a white paper on asset ‘pooling’ entitled “Pooling – how can fund managers respond efficiently to different investor needs”.
This is the second of the IMA’s reports on barriers into European cross-border business.
It identifies the obstacles to allowing fund managers to offer local funds, running them as if they were one single fund.
This report will support many issues around pooling as identified in the EC’s green paper on asset management released two weeks ago.
The first paper, released in June, looked at fund registration issues, and a third report, expected later this year will investigate mergers.
