AIFMD Key Updates | Presented by Benjamin Collette

April 7, 2014 - 10:00 am - 11:30 am

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”) was approved by the European Parliament on 11 November 2010 and transposed into the national law of EU member states by 22 July 2013. The Directive impacts:

  • how Alternative Investment Fund Managers (“AIFM’s”) distribute their funds, cross border   or otherwise;
  • how they remunerate their business; and
  • the support required to maximise their potential

The AIFMD provides for a transitional period of one year (i.e. until 21 July 2014) for existing AIFMs to comply with the AIFMD. With the available transitional periods expiring on 21 July 2014, what are the challenges that non-EU AIFMs are facing in order to continue marketing their Alternative Investment Funds in the EU? What is the appetite of the non-EU AIFMs to apply for an EU passport starting 2015? What are the significant impacts to regulatory and investor reporting as a result of implementation of AIFMD?
