What is AIFMD Annex IV reporting?

The AIFMD Annex IV report is a reporting requirement for alternative investment fund managers (AIFMs) under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).

AIFMs must report certain information to the competent authorities on an annual, half-yearly or quarterly basis depending on the leverage, the assets under management (AuM), the assets held and if the AIFM is registered or authorised.

The AIFMD Annex IV report contains detailed information about the AIFM and the alternative investment funds (AIFs) it manages. This includes information about the AIFM’s operations, and details about the AIFs, such as their investment strategies, portfolio holdings, stress tests, and leverages.

The AIFMD Annex IV report is intended to provide regulators with a comprehensive overview of the AIFM and the AIFs it manages to ensure that they are operating transparently and responsibly.

It is an important tool for regulators to monitor the activities of AIFMs and ensure that they comply with relevant regulations.

What is the frequency of AIFMD reporting?

The AIFMD Annex IV transparency reporting must be submitted annually, semi-annually, or quarterly, depending on various factors such as assets under management (AuM), leverage levels, asset types, and the registration or authorisation status of the AIFM. The initial filing deadline for the AIFMD Annex IV report is set at 30 days following the conclusion of the first reporting period after the authorisation of the AIFM. Fund-of-Funds, however, are granted an additional 15 days to comply with the deadline.

  • Yearly reporting: 30 or 45 days after the 31st of December.
  • Half-yearly reporting: 30 or 45 days after the 30th of June and the 31st of December.
  • Quarterly reporting: 30 or 45 days after the end of March, June, September and December.

FCA – UK

UK-based Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) and Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs) were only obligated to submit Annex IV reports to the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). However, following the transition period’s conclusion, UK AIFs with investors from EU jurisdictions under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) must now submit Annex IV reports to each jurisdiction.
