On 1 October 2013 ESMA published its guidelines on the reporting obligations for Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs), together with an Opinion setting out supplementary information that should be reported for systemic risk monitoring. These guidelines were subject to minor updates by ESMA on 15 November and have been published on ESMA’s website.
We will consult in due course on integrating this material into our Handbook. ESMA has also provided additional technical guidance on how to report and a consolidated reporting template.
We are aware that firms that are already authorised will, in certain circumstances, be required to provide regulatory reports to us in Q1 2014. As such, we will be in a position to receive reports from 1 January 2014. We request firms to report using the XML v1.1 reporting template published by ESMA with the final guidelines.
Please submit your completed returns, using the XML v1.1 reporting template, to: email@example.com
The subject line of the email should contain your FRN (or firm name for new applications) followed by 'AIFMD Reporting'. We will send an acknowledgement email to confirm receipt.
Firms are only expected to submit one XML return, no further attachments should be included in the email.
