Risk Management

The Alternative Investment Fund Management Directive (the ‘AIFMD’) introduces new regulatory standards for risk management. Alternative Investment Fund Managers (“AIFMs”) including private equity firms will need to establish, upgrade or benchmark existing portfolio risk and liquidity management arrangements to meet these requirements.

To help meet these requirements, our risk management services are as follows:

Gap Analysis – Cordium’s Risk Team will review your risk management arrangements and benchmark this analysis to the AIFMD guidelines and best practice principles. We will identify any weaknesses or gaps and recommend improvements.
Risk Governance – Cordium can help you to structure your risk governance arrangements in compliance with the AIFMD principles. Cordium can also become an independent member of the firm’s Risk Committee.
Product Installation – Cordium will help you to design, implement and embed a risk management policy designed to meet the standards of AIFMD. We offer templates, along with a full customised service.
Ongoing Independent Review – The AIFMD requires an independent review to be conducted at least annually. We will review the operation of the risk management arrangements and provide a report which will identify any weaknesses and also contain recommendations for improvement.
Regulatory Disclosures – The AIFMD expects managers to meet demanding disclosure requirements. Cordium can help you to comply with these requirements providing all the necessary regulatory comfort.
Delegation and Hosting – Our hosted regulatory platform Mirabella is particularly suitable for mid-sized fund managers who wish to comply with the AIFMD, but who do not have the resources to perform both investment and risk management in-house.
