Alternative Investment Management Association Representing the global hedge fund industry

Consultations and Responses

Although the final text of the Directive was published in 2011 and the final text of the Level 2 regulation was published on 19 December 2012, there are still guidelines and regulatory technical standards to be developed and national law transpositions to be completed. As a result there are at any given time expected to be a number of open consultations and a number of closed consultations with respect to which we are awaiting a final set of guidelines, regulatory technical standards, statutes or regulations.

For ease of reference, we have included below a list of consultations along with any relevant AIMA submissions related to such consultations.

If a consultation has closed and final text has been produced, AIMA submissions on those consultations can be found here.
