Key takeaways:
  • The European Commission has recently published a proposal to amend the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD). The proposal targets specific amendments to the AIFMD and does not involve a wholesale review. The Commission has also published a proposal for review of the Regulation on the European Long-Term Investment Fund (ELTIF).
  • Highlights include a new regime for loan origination funds and further focus by ESMA on AIFM delegation arrangements.
  • The proposals form an agenda of points for discussion in the European legislative process, with uncertainties about the final form the changes will take.
