Asset Management and Investment Funds Expected Developments and Deadlines in 2012
PRACTICE AREA GROUP: Asset Management and Investment Funds
The past year was a busy year in terms of financial regulation, with the transposition of the UCITS IV Directive into national law, the final adoption of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (“AIFMD”) and the introduction of a new Corporate Governance Code for the Irish Funds Industry, to name just a few developments. This year looks likely to continue the trend, with further developments to include proposals to amend UCITS IV (“UCITS V”), proposals on Packaged Retail Investment Products and the adoption of the European Market Infrastructure Regulation dealing with over-the-counter derivatives, central clearing counterparties and trade repositories.
