AIFMD Aims Hedge Fund and PE Regulation in EU

Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive – which aims to regulate private equity and hedge funds – is just nine months away.

The European Union’s Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive – which aims to regulate private equity and hedge funds – is just nine months away, but a new survey has shown that most firms are unprepared, and industry executives say some are ready to move offshore until they see how the new rules will work.

Accountant PwC has warned that the compliance process could take a year to put in place with time quickly running out. Its survey last week showed that 85% of 44 alternative managers have not started compliance or implementation programes to address AIFMD.
