The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) is the EU regulatory framework for alternative investment fund managers (AIFMs), including managers of hedge funds, private equity funds and investment trusts.

The Directive has been around for some time now, being implemented in the UK on July 22, 2013.

AIFMD insight is a dedicated online resource housing our recent AIFMD materials that are strategically grouped under core topic headings so that relevant, up-to-date information is readily accessible.

AIFMD insight features:

  • Legislation tracker containing links to the EU level 1, level 2 and level 3 materials and the papers that the UK regulators have published
  • AIFMD annual surveys covering 15 EU jurisdictions
  • Passports for non-EU AIFs and AIFMs
  • Asset management updater series
  • Omnibus proposals
  • Brexit and deregulation

To access AIFMD insight, you will need to register to The Institute—our client portal—where you will find all our information on asset management regulation together in one of our new knowledge hubs.

Together with information on asset management and AIFMD, you will also find our other resource on the Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS)—the main EU legislative framework covering the regulation and cross border marketing of collective investment schemes that are suitable for retail investors.
