The EU AIFM Directive for Private Investment Fund Managers – Breakfast Seminars in NYC (May 9) and Boston (May 10)

Goodwin Procter attorneys Glynn Barwick, Tom Beaudoin and John Ferguson will be hosting a breakfast presentation and discussion on how the uniform, minimum requirements for the marketing and operation of alternative investment funds within the European Economic Area (EEA) under the European Union's Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) Directive will apply to non-European fund managers marketing to EEA investors when they become effective July 22, 2013 (subject to any extensions that may be granted, e.g., the UK proposal to provide a one-year extension to Non-EEA managers as discussed here).  The seminar will focus specifically on the requirements applicable to non-European managers of venture capital funds, private equity funds, real estate funds and hedge funds.  Topics include:

  • Marketing a fund to a person within the EEA
  • Updated disclosure and reporting requirements
  • Investments in EEA large private companies
  • Impacts of non-compliance
