Understanding the role and responsibilities of the depository under AIF, UCITS and AIFLNPs

One of the most important issues, and due to the fact they never had to do so until recently, is the requirement to appoint a depository. This course will go through all the operational and practical details that professionals in the Funds sector are looking to get answers for, whether that is classical AIFs, or for Limited Number of Persons.
