With 75% of Asia and ROW funds still not compliant with the AIFMD, according to Preqin, the time to act is now!?


  • The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) is an EU Directive that was transposed into European countries? national law on 22 July 2013.
  • If you manage a fund that is not a UCITS, then it is an Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) and you are considered as the Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) and are hence subject to AIFMD. AIFs include all Private Equity, Hedge Fund and Real Estate funds and AIFMs are all managers of such AIFs
  • AIFMD regulates the distribution of all AIFs in Europe.
  • If one, or both, of the AIFM and AIF are resident in Europe you must be registered and have the required regulatory permissions in place by the summer of 2014.
  • If you are not registered and regulated as required, you will not be able to market or manage the AIF in Europe.
  • Non-EEA managers that do not comply with the AIFMD marketing requirements face not only the risk of regulatory enforcement and severe penalties by that manager?s home regulators but also the risk of legal action by disenchanted investors.
