Guernsey’s AIFMD solution to be revealed in London
Tuesday 1st October 2013, 10:25AM BST.
FUNDS experts from Guernsey and the UK will take the island’s innovative approach to AIFMD to a London audience next month.
With uncertainty still surrounding aspects of the EU’s Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, the speakers will look at what the island’s dual regime means in practice for advisers and clients, particularly in relation to the most appropriate route to market.
Guernsey Finance chief executive Fiona Le Poidevin, pictured, has said that spreading the message of the island’s solution to AIFMD was crucial for the local industry.
‘AIFMD has dominated a large proportion of the coverage relating to the European funds industry over the past couple of years but, despite this attention and focus, there are still many questions about certain aspects of the directive that remain unanswered,’ she said.
