Date: 04 May 2018

On 4th April 2018, ESMA published its latest Trends, Risks, Vulnerabilities (TRV) Report No. 1, 2018, which found that the vast majority of European AIFs are managed cross-border using passporting rights.

The ESMA TRV provides first-time EU-wide evidence on the AIF market, based on end-2016 data collected under the Alternative Investment Fund Directive (AIFMD). AIFs include hedge funds, real estate funds, funds-of-funds, and private equity funds.
