21 March 2024 9am – 9.45am + Add to calendar Webinar

We are delighted to announce that the UK government has confirmed its intention to proceed with the tax rules to introduce the Reserved Investor Fund (RIF) and will commence legislating through the upcoming Spring 2024 Finance Bill. This development signifies a pivotal moment for our industry and the broader economy.

Join us for this webinar where experts will delve into how the UK funds sector can launch and operate the newly proposed Reserved Investor Fund (RIF). Our session will explore the RIF's tax-transparent, closed-ended structure, addressing critical gaps in the UK's offerings while providing robust competition against offshore alternatives.

Our panel of experts will also examine how the RIF is poised to drive sustainable investments by attracting capital for regenerating town centres and accelerating net-zero goals.
