Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive

Investment managers preparing to meet the requirements of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD” or “the Directive”) will need to seek authorisation with the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”), meet enhanced operational and reporting requirements as well as substantially upgrade their compliance and risk management infrastructure, to adhere to standards set by the Directive.

AIFMD was implemented across Europe on 22 July 2013 and investment managers that provide services before that date and come under the scope of the Directive, have one year to establish compliance and submit an application to the regulator to be authorised as an Alternative Investment Fund Manager (“AIFM”).

"The most helpful part of the ELF Software is not having to receive paper statements anymore since employees must link their reportable brokerage accounts to the system.  It's also helpful to know that I can log on to monitor activity/transactions as close to real-time as possible."
