However, this is not typically an area where asset managers are considered as world leaders. Some might say that the industry’s foray into the digital world has been hindered by regulation, others might say that issues around transparency, general unwillingness to engage and a lack of foresight are bigger issues.

  • The legal difference between a consultant and an employee according to Nicaraguan Law

    Knowing the legal difference between a consultant and an employee is important for a company that needs to hire someone in Nicaragua or for a person interested in rendering services for a company or another person, due to the fact that the nature of the contractual relationship will determine many factors that both parties must be aware of before executing the contracting modality that will govern the relationship between them - the nature of the contractual relationship impacts on the employment benefits, tax implications and liabilities that the parties must comply with according to the law.  labor_law_in_nicaragua
