Overview

Since coming into full effect, the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and the Undertakings for the Collective Investment of Transferable Securities (UCITS) framework have posed significant challenges to fund managers and investors, requiring EU-based funds to comply with new and extensive authorisation, ongoing operation and transparency requirements.  The Maples Group acts as an authorised alternative investment fund manager (AIFM) and UCITS management company, providing services to alternative investment funds (AIFs) and UCITS funds that help meet their ongoing obligations under these regulations.

Our flexible full-service offering includes two approaches:

  • The hosted model, whereby the Maples Group will be appointed as the AIFM and / or UCITS manager; and
  • The delegation model whereby the Maples Group provides designated persons to provide functional support to a client’s own AIFM, UCITS management company, internally managed IAF or self-managed UCITS.

Both models provide local management and fulfilment of all regulatory requirements, alleviating operational burdens and allowing fund managers to focus on their core competencies. In addition, we offer a turnkey solution for launching a Qualifying Investor Alternative Investment Fund (QIAIF) sub-fund through our St. Stephen’s Green Fund, an Irish Collective Asset Management Vehicle (ICAV) that acts as an umbrella structure to offer a platform solution for clients looking to launch a regulated fund under the AIFMD.  This flexible solution caters to clients for whom launching and maintaining a fully-fledged standalone QIAIF may not be viable.  Clients take advantage of an established fund platform with regulatory approval, service providers and legal agreements already in place and that caters to large institutional investors and can permit US investors to operate in a more tax efficient manner.  The Maples Group's AIFM and UCITS management company services are delivered by a team of professionals with extensive experience in risk management, finance, operations and regulatory compliance, enabling us to deliver optimal solutions to clients.
