EU asset management industry united on UK role
The EU asset management industry benefits hugely from the UK’s involvement, according to Peter de Proft, director general of EFAMA, and Daniel Godfrey, chief executive of IMA.
Speaking in response to UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s speech on the future of the UK in the European Union on Wednesday, de Proft (pictured) and Godfrey said: “EFAMA and IMA strongly believe that asset management in the EU benefits hugely from the UK industry’s involvement, both commercially and from its positive influence in the shaping of regulation. We also believe that the UK asset management industry gains hugely from the Single Market.
“The whole EU asset management industry continues to keep the interests of investors at the heart of its work and to maintain the UK industry's prominent role in policy formation within the EU framework.”
