Over the last decade, the investment management industry has become more globally focused, and yet investment managers seeking to do business across borders still face a maze of complex and often contradictory national regulations and laws. As a result of operating in a global market, today’s investment manager unknowingly may be subject to some form of extra-territorial jurisdiction.
