The Central Bank of Ireland (“Central Bank”) has launched a consultation paper (“CP99”) outlining a number of proposed amendments to its Alternative Investment Fund (“AIF”) Rulebook.

We have set out below a classification table regarding the policy changes proposed in CP99, based on whether the changes represent new requirements, a UCITS alignment or a clarification of existing rules. We have also set out a table summarising the technical changes proposed in CP99.

The Central Bank’s consultation on these proposed amendments to the AIF Rulebook closes on 24 February 2016. The partners at Matheson intend to prepare a response to CP99, and we will also contribute to industry feedback and responses. We would be delighted to speak with you should you have any queries in relation to the proposals, or to discuss your viewpoint regarding any aspect of the consultation.
