  • CMS Guide to Passporting: Rules on Marketing Alternative Investment Funds in Europe

    13/11/2019

    We are pleased to issue our updated Guide to Passporting: Rules on Marketing Alternative Investment Funds in Europe.

    The EU Commission promoted passporting rights as one of the key benefits for hedge, private equity, real estate and other alternative investment fund managers authorised under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”).

    However, we are now experiencing impediments to the passporting rights as certain domestic regulators are imposing ‘border controls’, and fund managers need to pay fees and comply with various other requirements in order to market their funds cross-border.

    The diversity of the domestic rules makes it challenging for AIFMD authorised managers to assess the costs and various other requirements for penetrating the EU market. This guide provides a road map, which will hopefully assist managers in understanding the costs and other requirements under AIFMD, other EU directives and domestic regulations.

  • CMS Guide to Passporting : Rules on Marketing Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities in Europe

    13/11/2019

    We are pleased to issue our updated Guide to Passporting: Rules on Marketing Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities in Europe.

    The UCITS Directive was established to harmonise retail collective investment schemes in the EU through the introduction of a common investment vehicle known as a “UCITS”. One of the key benefits of the UCITS Directive is that UCITS can be established and regulated in one EU member state and offered in others without the need for further authorisation by virtue of passporting rights under the UCITS Directive.

    The purpose of this guide is to assist UCITS managers to understand the process and regulatory costs involved in exercising such passporting rights throughout Europe. To view and interactive version of the guide click here, to download our guide, please click here.

    13/11/2019

    We are pleased to issue our updated Guide to Private Placement of Funds: Accessing European Investors post-AIFMD.

    When implementing the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”), some EU States have tightened or severely restricted their private placement regimes, which is important when non-EU managers and funds look to access EU investors.

    Our Guide briefly summarises the latest developments in relation to the private placement regimes of EU States, as well as covering certain non-EU States. To view an interactive version of the Guide click here. Please click here to download the Guide.
