UnaVista can assist you in reporting to the relevant competent authorities.
Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) aims to create a harmonised regulatory framework for Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) in the European Union.
As part of the directive an AIFM is required to register for authorisation with a local competent authority by 22 July 2014. Authorisation is designed to provide transparency around how the AIFM works, as well as set out operating conditions that the AIFM must adhere to. To find out more about these, read our summary of AIFMD here.
A third aspect of the directive is that AIFMs need to report details of their funds to the relevant competent authority on quarterly, biannual or annual basis depending on the size of the fund. That report is split into manager level and fund level and includes exposures, risk profiles, AuM calculations, investment strategies and more.
UnaVista can assist you with the reporting of this information to the relevant competent authorities, removing the need for you to set up connections to multiple jurisdictions. See below for more information.

We manage the connections and formats so you don't have to
UnaVista can connect to all of the EU competent authorities, so you only need to send your data in UnaVista in the format you choose. After validation, enrichment and normalisation, we will then determine which competent authorities you need to report to, automatically generate the report and send it to the regulator in their specified format on your behalf.
