MFA Responds to HM Treasury’s Discussion Paper on AIFMD

MFA responded to HM Treasury’s discussion paper “Policy Options for Implementing the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive” (AIFMD).  In our response, we are strongly supportive of the Government’s intention not to impose additional requirements for third country managers or third country funds under the UK private placement regime.  Moreover, we support a flexible application of the Directive’s provisions differentiating between the types of AIF according to their size and structure.
