Alternative Investment Management Association
AIMA's Regulatory and Tax Department aims to keep members abreast of relevant developments which might affect their business. We do this by various means, including by summarising and responding to relevant consultations from across the world which relate to the hedge fund sector; by producing guidance notes for our members on a variety of topics; by maintaining a Jurisdictional Resource (a 'snapshot' of the regulatory and taxation position in a number of the more significant hedge fund jurisdictions); by displaying member firms’ client alerts on specific hot topics and by providing links to the more important open consultations on matters relating to hedge funds.
Further information on each of these can be found by clicking on the relevant link below (most being accessible to registered users only).
AIMA continues to proactively engage with key political leaders in its bid to promote the best interests of the hedge fund industry and to enhance understanding of alternative investments. AIMA's Policy & Government Affairs Department heavily invests its time in responding to proposed legislation and consultations from government bodies; actively participates on high-level committees; and regularly hosts events and briefing sessions aimed specifically at policymakers to ensure that AIMA's voice is heard at a political level.
In addition, AIMA seeks to maintain good relations with regulatory, fiscal and government authorities around the world and now has over 900 regulatory and policy contacts at more than 200 different authorities, to whom all AIMA educational material, responses, summaries and Guidance Notes are sent free of charge.
