Announcements Maples and AIMA Publish New AIFMD Implementation Guide
17 Apr 2014
The Irish guide, which was produced jointly by AIMA and the Dublin office of international law firm, Maples and Calder, builds on the generic AIFMD implementation guide that AIMA published in January 2013. It is intended to help managers understand how the AIFMD as implemented in Ireland will impact their business and sets out some of the strategic and operational choices that they face in order to respond to and comply with the AIFMD as transposed into national law in those countries.
Maples and Calder Partner, Peter Stapleton said, “We have been tracking the development of the AIFMD and advising our clients and their international counsel on the impact of the AIFMD across their Irish, Cayman Islands and BVI structures since the first draft texts were published almost five years ago. During that time we have seen particular interest in the co-domiciliation of international fund structures and the increasing use of Irish vehicles for management and marketing in the EEA. We are therefore delighted to partner with AIMA in producing the Irish guide. As we enter the key implementation phase for the AIFMD, with the first transitional periods expiring, the Irish guide will be an extremely valuable tool for all market participants, providing a clear and accessible overview of strategic options in Ireland and a wide range of possibilities to deal with the AIFMD.”
If you would like further information on the Ireland Guide please contact Peter Stapleton, any one of our global AIFMD experts noted above or your usual Maples and Calder contact.
