FI is amending Finansinspektionen's regulations (FFFS 2013:10) regarding alternative investment fund managers (the AIFM regulations). The objective is to adapt the regulations to changes in the legislation.
A Swedish AIF manager who provides discretionary management of investment portfolios and other ancillary services in other countries within the European Economic Area (EEA) shall apply Chapter 6 of the AIFM regulations regarding Swedish AIF managers' operations in other countries. This chapter regulates in part the language in which notifications to FI must be prepared and the content of a notification of significant changes.
An AIF manager who receives and forwards orders in financial instruments must obtain information from its customers in order to be able to recommend suitable investment services and financial instruments.
The amendments enter into force on 3 July 2015. Amendment 2015:4
