The AMF has updated its list of frequently asked questions on the transposition of the AIFM Directive into French law. This AMF Position (DOC-2013-22) aims to answer professionals’ questions on the rules applicable to asset management.
The AMF warns the public against investment offers promising exceptional yields and based, either visibly or otherwise, on setting up a system of recruitment, membership and enrolling other members. Although they may appear most attractive, these offers promise unrealistically high gains. They generally conceal genuine fraud, in some cases for money laundering purposes, and in most cases result in the loss of the initial outlay by the investor.
