The AIFMD harmonizes the requirements regarding the management and administration of alternative investment funds (AIF) which are distributed to professional investors in the EU. A central aspect is the regulation of the Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM).
On the one hand, the AIFMD addresses the obligation to hold a license and to be supervised, applicable to all EU-domiciled investment fund managers who are not already subject to the UCITS. On the other hand, it regulates access to the EU market for fund managers coming from non-EU member states, such as Switzerland, and defines the conditions under which asset management may be delegated.
In a first step, the internal market is restricted to EU-based AIFMs and AIFs. Until 2015, Swiss asset managers of collective investment schemes will only have access by observing the relevant national laws on private placement. Under certain circumstances, Swiss asset managers may also benefit from the new passport regime from 2015 onwards. In 2018, the EU Commission will then replace these national laws with the EU passport regime.
KPMG helps your company address AIFMD issues in a proactive way. We are constantly observing the latest developments and can therefore provide an in-depth assessment of potential impacts these new rules will have on your organization.
