German Insurers and Pension Funds May Effectively Be Banned from Investing in Non-EEA Private Funds
24 June 2014
View Client Update
The German Ministry of Finance recently issued a draft of a regulation to adapt the capital investment rules applicable to German insurers and certain retirement schemes to the regulatory framework under the AIFM Directive.
If enacted as currently drafted, this regulation would effectively ban German insurers and certain German retirement schemes from investing in private equity, real estate and debt funds managed by (most) non-EEA fund managers.
We are working with clients and other industry participants to convince the Ministry to eliminate the most troubling provisions of the draft regulation.
