Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD)
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's real estate funds to manage funds that are open for institutional investors other than bpfBOUW. The AIFMD specifies certain transparency and integrity-related requirements for Alternative Investment Funds. In 2015, Bouwinvest continued to optimise its reporting processes and streamlined its cooperation with depositary Intertrust Depositary Services B.V. Bouwinvest foresees no AIFMD-related challenges for 2016.
