The Alternative Investment Management Association (AIMA) has published a guide and accompanying press release to assist alternative asset managers with the UK implementation of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD). The guide states that it reflects the legislative status and regulatory developments in the UK as at 28 February 2014. Broadly, the objective of the guide is to provide managers with:

  • an indication of the key areas where the UK’s implementation of the AIFMD is likely to impact their business;
  • within those areas, some of the strategic and operational choices managers have available to them in deciding how they wish to respond to the AIFMD; and
  • an overview of the issues that will be relevant to such choices.
