The Investment Management Association (IMA) has published a press release warning about the potential pitfalls in forthcoming European regulation. The headlines in the press release are:

  • UCITS IV package offers the funds industry less than it originally promised.
  • The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive is much more than a hedge fund and private equity Directive.
  • Politicians need to differentiate more clearly between different parts of the financial services industry to avoid inflicting unnecessary damage.
