Meeting the Data Challenge of AIFMD

The Alternative Investment Fund Management Directive (AIFMD) came into effect in 2013. Most financial institutions within its scope, particularly hedge funds and firms that service those funds, have since completed the majority of work required to meet their obligations under the regulation, but some thorny data management issues remain.

Hedge funds are challenged by the complexity of the regulation’s data management requirements and also find difficulty sourcing necessary codes and classifications. In turn, asset managers must make substantial investments to service the data requirements of their hedge fund clients and asset servicers must manage the scale of operations required by the regulation.

This White Paper, sponsored by Thomson Reuters:

  • Outlines the scope and impact of AIFMD
  • Explains the data requirements of the regulation
  • Identifies its key data and data management challenges
  • Provides best practice approaches for compliance
