AREF is currently working on a response to the EU consultation on changes to the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive. You can find details on the consultation and what AREF is doing to respond here.
Along with other industry bodies, the broad approach to the response is to suggest that the existing "level 1” regulation, in the form of the Directive itself, is not changed but that areas of uncertainty can be dealt with through changes to the "level 2” regulation and clearer guidance. Earlier this week, AREF held a roundtable event to obtain member feedback, details here.
If you were not able to join the roundtable, but would like to provide feedback, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to gather AREF members’ views on a few of the questions in the consultation, we are conducting our own survey. We would greatly appreciate it if you could find time to fill out the survey by 6th January 2021.
