Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive: Implementation of Regulations and Existing Issues

A workshop entitled “Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive: Implementation of Regulations and Existing Issues” will be held at the Westin Warsaw Hotel on 11–12 March 2015. The event is organized by MMC Polska and will be led by Dr Krzysztof Haładyj and Małgorzata Bakuła from the Banking & Finance team at Wierzbowski Eversheds.

The issues covered at the workshop will include:

  • Appointment of a depositary—who may serve in this role under the AIFMD implementing act
  • Forms of oversight and criminal sanctions indicated by AIFMD, compared to existing Polish and EU regulations
  • Main aspects of liquidity risk management and protection of information regulated by AIFMD and Poland’s AIFMD Act.

Our law firm will be represented by Dr Krzysztof Haładyj, manager of the Banking & Finance team, and Małgorzata Bakuła, an attorney at law from the same team.

Dr Krzysztof Haładyj will give a presentation on legal and practical issues of implementation of AIFMD in Poland, including more specifically:

  • Permitting requirements
  • Duties arising under the European Commission’s implementing regulations
  • Permissible forms for outsourcing of a portion of the duties of alternative investment fund managers.

Małgorzata Bakuła will discuss the new rules for listing of AIF participation rights and creation of alternative investment funds.
