AIFMD and leverage

  • Competent authorities could have powers to restrict leverage when the use of leverage:

    • could constitute an important source of risk to a financial institution

    • may contribute to the downward spiral in the prices of financial instruments or other assets

Third country issues

  • AIFMD – investor access reduced?

  • EMIR – ability to clear outside EU uncertain?

  • MiFID/MiFIR – ability to trade with non EU counterparties/clients impossible?

Conclusion

  • Key market features necessary for successful operation under serious threat in the EU
