The full text of the final guidelines is contained in Annex III to the report and include key information on:

  • the categories of staff that they apply to;
  • the types of remuneration covered by the guidelines; and
  • internal governance arrangements of Alternative Investment Funds in respect of remuneration.

The guidelines will apply from July 22, 2013, subject to the transitional provisions prescribed by the AIFMD.
