The Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) has launched the new Investment Services Rulebooks, duly aligned with the requirements of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (‘AIFMD’) following the consultation process which has been ongoing since December 2012. Accordingly, the MFSA is accepting applications for licences in terms of the AIFMD and the related Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 231/2013 (‘Level II Regulation’).

All updated Investment Services Rules together with the relevant amended legislation, application forms, information guides and other information related to the transposition of the AIFMD into Maltese law is now available via a dedicated section on the MFSA’s official website and easily accessible.

By 22nd July 2013 Member States are required to adopt and publish the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with the provisions of the AIFMD.
