Following Brexit and the end of the transitional period on 31 December 2020, EU law including The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) no longer applies in the UK. Instead, to regulate the management and marketing of Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) in the UK, a new regime was put in place, ‘UK AIFMD’. In principle, this follows the EU’s AIFMD regulation and firms must continue to meet their Annex IV reporting obligations in the UK.
However, UK Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) are now considered Non-EU AIFMs. This means the marketing passports that AIFMs previously used to market their AIFs in the EU no longer apply. As a consequence, AIFMs will need to review whether they are marketing their AIFs into the EU, and if they are, obtain approval under each EU Member State’s NPPR in order to conduct marketing activities in those jurisdictions. This means that Annex IV reporting will need to be carried out in each of the member states where the AIFM markets its AIFs.
