AIFMD

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) is a European Union regulation that governs the management and marketing of alternative investment funds. It imposes regulatory requirements on fund managers, including reporting and disclosure obligations, to enhance investor protection and market transparency. AIFMD aims to create a harmonized regulatory framework for alternative investment funds across the EU.
IVP Regulatory Reporting Solution simplifies the cross jurisdictional intricacies of AIFMD reporting, enabling hassle-free regulatory compliance and improved management of your fund’s data.

Fact Sheet

Login Required

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) is a European Union (EU) regulation created in 2013 to help prevent instability and systemic risks in the financial system. The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) is the governing body for AIFMD filings. AIFMD consists of rules and filing procedures that all alternative asset managers must follow — including hedge funds, private equity funds, and real estate funds. Under AIFMD, asset managers must report details of portfolio management, market risks, liquidity risks, asset classes managed, and total assets under management (AUM), among others. 

When is AIFMD filed?

AIFMD is filed every three months (quarterly), six months (biannually), and 12 months (annually) depending upon the fund’s total AUM. 

Challenges in AIFMD filing

Complying with AIFMD can be challenging for three reasons:

  • Data collation from multiple sources: Collecting and collating data from various sources and third-party systems can be time-consuming and cumbersome. Often, these data sets cannot be managed and analyzed effectively.
  • Compliance with ESMA guidelines: There are multiple rules and guidelines laid out by ESMA for AIFMD reporting, as well as different formats to use. Asset managers need to stay aware of relevant guidelines to be compliant with the required formats.
  • Review, analysis, and data validation: The complex nature of AIFMD calculations makes it very cumbersome for asset managers to analyze the information required for these reports.
