Summary:

On July 21, 2011, the EU Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”) came into force with the result that each EU Member State must transpose it into national law no later than July 22, 2013. The AIFMD significantly changes EU regulation of not only alternative investment fund managers (“AIFMs”) and their service providers, but also the alternative investment funds (“AIFs”) they manage, including hedge funds, private equity funds, and real estate.
