On June 12, the Draft Investment Fund Managers Regulations 2013, together with an explanatory memorandum, were published. The Regulations come into force on July 22.

The Regulations implement the majority of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (2011/61/EU) (AIFMD). The AIFMD aims to introduce a harmonised regulatory framework across the EU for EU-established managers (AIFMs) of alternative investment funds (AIFs).

The Regulations implement the AIFMD by amending the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) and other relevant legislation (in the schedules to the Regulations) so that managing an AIF, which is required to be authorised under the AIFMD, is regulated under the FSMA. Stand-alone provisions in the main body of the Regulations (and further amendments in the schedules) also apply requirements of the AIFMD both to persons regulated under that regime and to other persons who are not required to be authorised under the AIFMD but whom the AIFMD imposes requirements on.

The UK Government will review the Regulations and publish a report setting out the conclusions of the review by July 22. Draft Investment Fund Managers Regulations 2013. Explanatory Memorandum.
