      The AIFMD Passport

      • At the present the AIFMD passport option is only open to EU AIFMs managing and marketing EU AIFs.
      • While non-EU managers may consider establishing an EU-domiciled fund in order to access EU-domiciled investors, the requirement to establish and EU AIFM means that for a lot of non-EU managers, the costs outweigh the benefits.
      • We see most of our non-EU domiciled clients who are establishing an EU-domiciled fund utilise the services of third-party management companies.
      • Essentially the third-party management company operates as the AIFM of the EU fund but delegates investment management back to the non-EU manager. Under the AIFMD, an AIFM is permitted to delegate portfolio management provided it retains risk management responsibility.
      • Some platform providers also offer a fund platform so that external managers can form a separate sub-fund within their platform fund and which can save time and costs.
