AIFMD is a lover’s pet name for the EU’s Alternative Investment Fund Management Directive[1]

It came into force on 22 July 2013 and regulates:

Hedge funds and private equity funds and those managing them were not previously subject to the as much regulation as mutual funds (including UCITS) or pension funds, and some people[2] felt this lack of oversight contributed to the severity of the global financial crisis. So, enter AIFMD to redress that gap.
