The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) regulates the management, administration and marketing of alternative investment funds (AIFs) in the European Union. An AIF is a collective investment undertaking that is not subject to the UCITS regime. This includes hedge funds, private equity funds, retail investment funds, investment companies and real estate funds.
Key issues covered by the AIFMD include authorisation and operating conditions for AIFMs, remuneration, conduct of business and valuation requirements, transparency, marketing and rules in relation to third countries. The Directive also includes requirements for firms acting as a depositary of an AIF.
