The information which must be submitted by AIFMs to the MFSA relates to their operations along with the operations of the Alternative Investment Funds (the “AIFs”) they manage. Depending on the characteristics of the AIFM and the AIF being managed, reporting must occur annually, half-yearly and quarterly.
The Guidelines cover reporting timeframes, XML reporting format, specific information reporting, special situations, the ESMA opinion, AIFM return files and further considerations. They also contain a User Manual to facilitate the submission of reporting requirements.
Furthermore, the MFSA took this opportunity to remind licence holders about the FAQs pertaining to the Directive, as updated from time to time, as well as any other ESMA and MFSA publications. MFSA’s guidelines can be found Here.
