AIMA and the Organisation of the Government and Regulatory Affairs (GRA) Department
AIMA is a trade association representing the global hedge fund industry. Headquartered in London, AIMA services approximately 1,300 corporate members, in over 50 countries, AIMA is the leading industry advocate, maintaining close dialogue with national and supranational policy making institutions, governments and regulatory agencies, providing responses to important regulatory and tax consultations and developing sound practices and industry guidance for our members.
Working within a trade association is unique. It combines deep knowledge of the law and the business of member firms with a prominent advocacy component and public policy outreach. Our Government and Regulatory Affairs Department manages all matters relating to regulatory and tax issues of relevance to the AIMA membership base. The growth of our specialist industry and the substantial increase in issues, particularly over the last 36 months, means that the department’s role has become a crucial one.
The Department consists of four teams: Regulatory and Industry Guidance, Asset Management Regulation, Markets Regulation and Tax Affairs. The Department is headed by the Director of Government and Regulatory Affairs. Each team, in turn, consists of a Director and an Associate Director, Regulatory Manager and/or Regulatory Analyst, along with dedicated secretarial support.
Role: Manager – Asset Management Regulation, Reporting to Head of Asset Management Regulation Team
AIMA has built an exceptionally high reputation for representing the interests of the hedge fund industry globally. The level of its output is matched only by its attention to detail and professionalism and a desire to reflect the unique characteristics of its membership.
The position of Manager requires a self-starter; he/she will need to demonstrate familiarity with, and knowledge of, many different regulatory regimes; to track developments efficiently in a wide range of jurisdictions and to set out AIMA’s position on relevant topics publicly and in private meetings. There is significant scope for the individual to grow and develop the role.
The successful candidate will work within the Asset Management Regulation team at a level appropriate to his or her seniority and experience. Responsibility will cover the broad range of regulatory initiatives and developments - in EMEA, the Americas and Asia-Pacific - which affect AIMA’s members – at present, these include (but are not limited to) AIFMD, UCITS V/VI, EU remuneration, shadow banking, statutory audit, long-term investment initiatives, UK regulatory reforms, SEC and CFTC registration, exemption and regulatory matters and systemic risk reporting.
The successful candidate will work on various projects, usually with the assistance of working groups made up of AIMA members and would be expected to assume personal responsibility for specific work-streams. In addition, there is an increasing advocacy role in putting forward AIMA’s case in respect of various files in front of policy makers and regulatory authorities.
As well as having a solid knowledge of and good experience in financial services regulation and law, the successful candidate will be able to display a thorough knowledge of the law making process in the EU and the US. A legal, compliance or other relevant industry or trade body background and/or experience within a governmental or similar agency is likely to be essential.
