Keep Calm and Carry On Investing
This panel explores the decision of the U.K. to leave the European Union in June 2016 and its many far-reaching political implications for hedge funds and the private-equity industry, many of which are still generally unclear. The recent U.S. presidential elections also waged war on the private-equity industry, and on hedge funds in particular. The panel looks at how Brexit and the U.S. elections have impacted and continue to impact hedge funds and the private-equity industry, particularly in terms of managing, distributing and exiting funds. It also examines what it means for the restructuring and winding-up of entities commonly used in the hedge fund and private-equity industry generally and those sectors that are most likely to be impacted, with a particular focus on the Cayman Islands, Ireland and the U.S.
