ESMA is consulting on guidelines for national authorities to which alternative investment fund managers (AIFMs) will report under the AIFMD. The guidelines cover:

  • the information that AIFMs should report to national authorities;
  • the timing of reports; and
  • the procedures to be followed when AIFMs move from one reporting obligation to another.

The guidelines also include the reporting template and a summary of the reporting obligations of AIFMs as well as detailed IT guidance. ESMA asks for comments by 1 July. (Source: ESMA Consults on AIFMD Reporting Obligations)
