Regulating hedge funds, private equity and other alternative investment vehicles

Assessment on the proposed AIMF Directive and further proposals for a comprehensive legal framework

This memorandum proceeds with an assessment of the proposed AIFM directive and lays down the ground of what should be an appropriate regulatory framework for hedge funds (“HFs”), private equity (“PE”) and other alternative vehicles. It is divided into three sections: general comments, detailed analysis and a list of items that the directive fails to address. It presents a set of proposals summarizing what an appropriate framework should be, which is presented at the end of the document.
