The European Commission is reviewing the effectiveness of the alternative investment fund managers directive (AIFMD) and considering targeted amendments to improve the functioning of the legal framework. Based on the outcome of the review, the Commission may bring forward an amending proposal for consideration by the EU co-legislators.
The Commission has assessed the extent to which the objectives pursued by the AIFMD have been achieved and has presented on 10 June 2020 a report to the European Parliament and Council that concluded that the AIFMD has been largely effective, despite some regulatory gaps and areas that could be improved. In October 2020, the Commission launched a public consultation to gather input on potential changes to the AIFMD.
This event is an opportunity for interested parties to discuss the key issues and debate possible policy solutions. There will be 3 panels focusing on macro prudential, investor protection and competitiveness matters to facilitate the exchange of views among the panellists and contribute to the Commission’s work on this important file.
