AIFMD

The Alternative Investment Funds Managers Directive (AIFMD) is a EU legislation on the financial regulation of hedge funds, private equity, real estate funds, and other "Alternative Investment Fund Managers" in the European Union. It came into force in July 2011.

AIFM was the first EU level legislation to regulate Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) and was part of the G20 nations’ response to the financial crash of 2008.

Key provisions of AIFMD enforce greater transparency for AIFMs and ensure that national supervisory boards, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the European Systemic Risks Board (ESRB) have all the information they need to monitor systemic risk.

Ensuring compliance with the AIFMD regime continues to be a pressing issue for many firms. SteelEye was launched to help firms comply smarterTM and provides firms with the tools to meet their regulatory requirements under AIFMD. To learn more about how SteelEye can help, book a demo!
