On 12 February the new obligation to report all derivatives transactions to trade repositories comes into force, a requirement imposed on all derivatives users by the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR, Regulation (EU) No 648/2012). The obligation is designed to improve the transparency and regulatory oversight of derivatives contracts.
To support market participants in implementing the new rules arising from the AIFM Directive, the AMF has published a list of frequently asked questions on the subject in the form of a position (DOC-2013-22). It has also published an instruction on registration arrangements for legal entities managing certain types of alternative investment funds (AIF) where those legal entities are not required to be authorised as portfolio management companies (DOC-2013-21).
