The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has recommended that the passport under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) be extended to AIFMs in Switzerland (upon the adoption of certain pending legislation), Jersey and Guernsey and EU AIFMs which manage AIFs established in those jurisdictions. This means that the European Commission may now proceed with legislation to put the extension into effect for AIFMs and AIFs from these countries.
