KPMG are carrying out an online survey until 30 March, which seeks input from the wide range of stakeholders impacted by the AIFMD, including AIFMs, depositaries, investors, distributors and asset managers. We are asking for views on the AIFMD’s requirements, experience in applying them and the market impacts. The study is focused on 15 EU Member States, but respondents from any countries (including non-EU) are welcome.
The online survey will also be complemented by an evidence-based study assessing whether the AIFMD is effective, efficient, relevant and coherent and has had added value for the EU.
