UK - Treasury plans to assess the effectiveness of the Myners Review will be announced at the NAPF Investment Conference in Edinburgh this week.
Conference delegates will also hear the industry speak out on its progress with shareholder activism and the “real story” behind the Higgs review.
In addition the NAPF is set to launch three publications at the conference: Transaction Costs made Simple, Custody made Simple and Equity Derivatives made Simple.
The conference – held between March 12 and 14 – will also feature a pre-conference trustee workshop on understanding transaction costs, highlighting the questions trustees should ask, and a topical update session on the Green Paper, the Inland Revenue review and a guide to what is coming next.
Speakers at the conference will include NAPF chief executive Christine Farnish, NAPF investment council chairman Ken Ayers and a wide range of industry experts.
