At the end of 2021, the EU Commission published a proposal to amend the AIFM Directive, which is also intended to amend the provisions of the UCITS Directive. The proposals are related to the implementation of the "New Capital Markets Union Action Plan". The AIFM Directive, which came into force after the global financial crisis, is being revised for the first time on a regular basis. This was preceded by a comprehensive review process, during which the EU Commission confirmed that the regulations were largely effective. In particular, the AIFMD plays an important role in creating a single market for alternative investment funds and strengthens the regulatory and supervisory framework for managers of such funds in the EU. The proposals of the EU Commission therefore only address a few areas, where the regulatory framework could be improved. These relate, among other things, to the harmonization of individual requirements under the AIFM and UCITS Directive, such as reporting, new requirements for managers of lending funds (loan-originating AIFs) and the use of liquidity management tools, including the transparency regulations based thereon. Likewise, changes in the area of ​​outsourcing are under discussion to prevent letterbox companies. new requirements for managers of lending funds (loan-originating AIFs) and the use of liquidity management instruments, including transparency regulations based on them.
