The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) (2011/61/EU) was introduced into the European Union (EU) on 21st July 2011 and took effect on 22nd July 2013. It sought to create a harmonised regulatory framework for the management and marketing of venture capital, private equity, and other investment funds. The AIFMD sought to provide a set of common rules that govern the authorisation, organisation, and supervision of Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) who manage Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs). In addition, it put in place rigorous requirements for AIFMs in order to limit systemic risk, bolster investor protection, and ensure that there were robust internal risk management practices employed by AIFMs. Additionally, the AIFM allowed AIFMs to benefit from a passport to manage, promote, and market AIFs across the EU single market.
The AIFMD: Operational Compliance Update training course seeks to expertly train attendees on all relevant aspects of the AIFMD regulatory compliance framework. Attendees will be instructed on all key AIFMD requirements, and will also be provided with operational, technological, and strategic perspectives on AIFMD internal compliance frameworks. This will include detailed guidance on AIFMD strategic implications such as the impact of Brexit on AIFMD operations, as well as detailed guidance on the requirements for AIFMD Annex IV Reporting. AFIMDs need to comprehensively understand the new leverage framework and risk exposure calculation methods (commitment, gross), how to calculate Assets Under Management (AUM), and how to source all data required (i.e. investor data, positions data, trading data, liquidity risk data) for reporting purposes.
