In early 2014, Bouwinvest was one of the first parties in the Netherlands to obtain an AFM licence as required by the AIFMD. This licence allows Bouwinvest to manage funds that are open for other institutional investors besides bpfBOUW.
The AIFMD specifies certain transparency and integrity-related requirements for Alternative Investment Funds. In 2015, Bouwinvest further optimised its reporting processes. In addition to this, Bouwinvest streamlined its cooperation with depositary Intertrust. Bouwinvest foresees no AIFMD-related challenges for 2016.
