A Recap of AIMA’s 2019 Global Policy & Regulatory Forum

The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) recently held its annual “Global Policy & Regulatory Forum” (GPRF) in New York City. This year’s event was devoted to the themes of technology, innovation and change, although lingering questions over Brexit periodically arose throughout the day. Despite this uncertainty, the overall mood was positive, as speakers noted that their Brexit contingency plans accounted for the array of possible outcomes. The GPRF included insights from regulators across several different jurisdictions, and it prominently featured conversations with CFTC Commissioner Rostin Behnam and SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce. This article highlights some of the core themes that were explored during the GPRF.
