AIFMD reporting: Annex IV
Meeting the challenging reporting requirements of AIFMD Annex IV means significant investment in skills. Figuring out how and what you need to report under AIFMD is complex and depends on your structure and assets under management.
Most AIFMs that are managing AIFs or marketing them into the European Union or the EEA will have to complete Annex IV reports. These Annex IV reports will have to be submitted to the relevant National Competent Authority (NCA), which in the UK is the FCA. A non-EEA AIFM will have to file a report to the NCA of each member state in which it markets an AIF. Firms are required to make returns either quarterly, bi-annually or annually.
Annex IV returns can require complex risk calculations and all returns need to be submitted to the FCA via the Gabriel system. We can help you with the completion of these returns.
