ESMA issues final guidelines on AIFMD reporting
Time to prepare
Alternative investment fund managers will be required to report on a wide variety of areas, including investment profile, portfolio concentrations and the risk profile of their alternative investment funds. The guidelines were accompanied by a new consolidated reporting template and detailed technical guidance.
ESMA also issued an ‘opinion’ on the collection of additional information for effective monitoring of systemic risk. It includes a request to gather value-at-risk reporting on alternative investment funds, among other additional measures.
This briefing provides a summary of the key changes in comparison with the draft guidelines and implications for alternative investment fund managers to consider as they finalize their preparations for AIFMD reporting.
