AIFMD II - Conclusion

The amendments and additions provided by the Commission proposal, the European Parliament draft report, and the Council position should lead to the strengthening and growth of the European alternative investment fund sector. They should help to make capital more accessible in Europe and, without wholesale changes to the AIFMD is not rewritten, some areas could have a significant impact on AIFMs. The level 2 legislation should also provide additional clarity. We expect AIFMD II to come into force in 2025.
