Posted on 29 Oct 2012

Laven Partners is pleased to announce the launch of a web page dedicated to the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).

The page goes live today, Monday 29 October 2012 and can be found at: http://www.lavenpartners.com/aifmd/.

With this new site, Laven Partners will guide industry players through the legislative process of this new piece of EU legislation by providing regular updates. Readers will be kept informed of news of events, consultation papers and other useful yet practical information. We will be encouraging all those interested in the AIFMD to visit the site and to contact us for more information on the topic.

In addition, visitors will be able to follow our AIFMD focused updates and views on twitter at https://twitter.com/LavenAIFMD.

What is happening currently in relation to AIFMD?

– In the Netherlands, the Dutch parliament has approved a law that implements the AIFMD. The Netherlands is the first country to implement this new piece of regulation.

– Luxembourg expects to adopt the AIFMD by the end of 2012. The Luxembourg Parliament is currently considering a bill which will transpose Level 1 of the directive into national law and introduce other measures for hedge funds.

– Germany has published a draft bill implementing the AIFMD which goes beyond the directive’s minimum requirements.

– Implementation of the directive in Ireland is expected by 1 January 2013.

Laven Partners can help managers plan and prepare for the implementation of the Directive.
