ESMA publishes letter from European Commission on AIFMD passport

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published the letter it received from the European Commission (EC) in respect of its advice on the application of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) passport to non-EU AIFMs and AIFs, and ESMA’s opinion on the functioning of the passport for EU AIFMs and on the national private placement regimes’ (NPPRs).

ESMA suggested it produce another opinion because the delay in implementing the AIFMD, together with the delay in the transposition of the Directive in some Member States, made it difficult for ESMA to provide a definitive assessment by July 2015, the initial legislative deadline.
