On January 18, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published the responses to the Committee of Securities and Regulators’ (CESR) December 2010 call for evidence on the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) implementing measures. (ESMA replaced CESR on January 1, 2011.)

The call for evidence (see the December 10, 2010, edition of Corporate and Financial Weekly Digest) requested input regarding CESR’s technical advice to the European Commission on the implementing measures for the EU AIFMD. This input will be taken into account by ESMA in the development of its draft advice on the content of the AIFMD implementing measures, which will be published for consultation in 2011. The published responses came from a variety of trade associations and individual firms.
