Commission Delegated Regulations on the information to be provided by national regulators to the European Securities and Markets Authority on the passport for EU alternative investment fund managers managing or marketing EU alternative investment funds in the EU were published on March 27, 2015. Under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, ESMA is required to assess the functioning of the EU passport regime, the operating conditions for AIFs and their managers and the potential impact of an extension of the passport. The Regulations set out the information that national regulators will need to provide to ESMA, including the numbers of EU AIFMs authorized in their jurisdiction, problems relating to coordination between national regulators and cooperation arrangements with non-EU regulators, the effectiveness of the collection and sharing of information for monitoring systemic risk and the national regime for marketing of non-EU AIFs by EU AIFMs.
