Who needs to report?

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) has been in effect across Europe since July 2014. All authorised and registered Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) and Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) are required to report.

What do I need to report?

EU AIFMs are required to report on a regular basis to their local regulators for each EU AIF they manage and for each non-EU AIF they market in the Union. Non-EU AIFMs are also required to report to each EU regulator where their AIFs are marketed.

AIFs that have not closed still need to report a nil return.

When do I need to report?

Frequency of reporting is dependent on a number of factors such as leverage, assets under management (AUM) and the types of investment held. In general, most Private Equity AIFs will need to report annually by 31 January each year.

The reporting period starts from the first day of the calendar quarter following authorisation or registration of the AIFM. The deadline for submission of the report is one month after the reporting period. Fund of Funds have an additional 15 days.
