The Investment Supervision and Policy Division is pleased to announce that the AIFMD FAQs have recently been updated. The AIFMD FAQs may be found under the Investment Supervision and Policy Division's tab on the Commission' website.
The updates include the latest position on marketing into Greece and Bulgaria together with answers to questions the Commission has received on the treatment of pre-marketing under the AIFMD (Marketing) Rules, 2013 and the interpretation of Rule 5.3 of the AIFMD (Marketing) Rules, 2013.
We hope the FAQs provide a useful mechanism by which you can keep yourself updated with the Commission's position on AIFMD, in particular we would like to draw to your attention the information in respect of the EEA's approach to third countries marketing into their jurisdiction. For example, the entry under the Netherlands states that the Guernsey will remain designated by the Netherlands Government as an equivalent country until 2018.
If you have any queries over the FAQs or suggestions for potential FAQs please contact either Nick Herquin [email protected] or Emma Bailey [email protected] of the Investment Supervision and Policy Division.
