EU Review: Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive08/18/2020The European Securities and Markets Authority has published a letter addressed to the European Commission on the upcoming review of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive. In the letter, ESMA highlights areas that it considers would benefit from a review and potential amendments. ESMA considers these areas important because of the discussions it has had with national regulators on the practical difficulties involved in implementing the AIFMD. ESMA is proposing policy improvements and reporting recommendations, including harmonizing the AIFMD and UCITS regimes. The areas of focus include delegation and substance, liquidity management tools, leverage and the harmonization of supervision of cross-border entities. The Commission is likely to publish its proposals for amending AIFMD in Q3 2020.
