Interactive Data launches solution to address AIFMD requirements

Interactive Data, a provider of independent evaluated pricing and reference data services, has introduced a solution to help financial institutions address the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).

The solution can help alternative investment fund managers and their service providers successfully manage the transition to AIFMD and maintain ongoing compliance with it.
 
The new due diligence, transparency and reporting requirements of the Directive present a range of data and valuation challenges, especially for those firms that have not previously managed or operated these functions.
 
Interactive Data can help clients to identify and address their AIFMD needs. For example, in order to classify the portfolios of Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) into asset type and geographical categories, as defined by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) guidelines on data reporting obligations, AIFMs need access to specifically tailored reference data, including relevant codes. Interactive Data offers bespoke AIFMD reference data, incorporating ESMA taxonomy to identify and define data items and asset types.
 
"We are confident that our ESMA-defined, AIFMD-specific data items along with award-winning* evaluated pricing, reference data and robust analytics can help firms successfully manage the transition to AIFMD and maintain ongoing compliance,” says Anthony Belcher, director EMEA pricing and reference data at Interactive Data. “Our solution is already being implemented by clients and we are pleased with how smooth the process has been.  Interactive Data can help address their needs through a variety of innovative delivery methods and intuitive displays, including Vantage, our industry recognised valuation transparency portal.”
