The amended AIFMD guidelines will come into force on 1 January 2017. The amendment to the AIFMD guidelines relates to the section of these guidelines dealing with the application of the remuneration rules in a group context and is intended to acknowledge the potential outreach of the CRD rules in a banking group. The current AIFMD Guidelines will not be further amended to bring them into line with the UCITS Guidelines pending clarification on the application of the proportionality principle.
