The AIFM marketing passport mirrors to some extent the one existing for UCITS funds.
A notification must be made to the home regulator of the AIFM and the maintenance of this registration needs to be ensured at all times thereafter.
Even though the registration process has been harmonised by the AIFMD, local specificities imposed by the host countries of distribution remain. A good knowledge of these requirements is key to rapidly get the benefit of the passport.
The experts of our regulatory consulting expertise driven by Arendt Regulatory & Consulting S.A. (ARC) assist AIFMs throughout the entire process:
Identification of the information/documents needed per country to prepare and finalise the notification package, liaising with the AIFM's corresponding intermediaries, if any
Preparation of the notification package and submission to the AIFM's home country regulator
Follow-up of the file until it is considered complete by the regulator, including any potential feedback from the host regulators
Ensure maintenance obligations
AIFM management passport
The cross-border management of AIFs also requires the fulfilment of a passporting procedure. Our team assists AIFMs in swiftly obtaining this passport.
