BNY Mellon launches AIFMD regulatory reporting service

BNY Mellon has launched a new service for fund managers that helps them identify, aggregate and manage the regulatory reporting requirements of the Alternative Investment Fund Manager’s Directive (AIFMD).

Under AIFMD, alternative investment fund managers (AIFMs) must file a specifically formatted report with their home member state’s supervisory authority, or national competent authority.
 
The report requirements are extensive and cover aspects of both the fund manager and the fund, such as investment strategies, exposures, portfolio concentration, total value of assets under management, principal markets and instruments in which investments are made, plus detailed information on the funds’ risk profile.
 
BNY Mellon will work with its fund administration clients to aggregate and collect the necessary data from designated sources, including AIFMs, administrators, custodians, prime brokers and risk vendors as appropriate. The company will then populate the AIFMD regulatory report for the AIFM to review, approve and file with the national competent authority.
 
“Alternative investment fund managers are increasingly challenged by the growing global regulatory reporting demands of AIFMD,” says Alan Flanagan, BNY Mellon global head of product management for alternative investment services. “Our seamless solution will provide them with a signature ready report for their approval and submission, enabling them to stay focused on investment strategy and management.”
