Paris seminar explores impact of new FATCA rules on Investment Funds in Europe

Around 40 fund managers, hedge funds, trust companies and lawyers attended Curtis's Paris seminar last Tuesday, 13 September. The seminar, entitled “Investment Funds: Recent Tax Developments, Understanding FATCA, FBAR and Key Regulations in Europe” brought the European audience up to date with latest developments in the FATCA rules (some of which had taken place within the previous 48 hours). Many of the audience were in Paris for the International Fiscal Association's annual congress, which took place the same week.

New York partners Alan S. Berlin and William L. Bricker, Jr joined Paris based partner Marco A. Blanco for a panel presentation on recent developments in US international taxation. Frankfurt based partner Christian Fingerhut and Milan based partner Fabrizio Vismara drew out the impact of the new rules on investment funds in the European regulations, particularly in Germany and Italy.
