AIFM and AIF Reporting
Sub threshold AIFMs includes all directly appointed managers of AIFS( not after delegation by the manager of the AIF), including AIFs of limited number of investors (former ICIS), that are not authorized as an AIFM as per the Alternative Fund Managers Law of 2013. Entities that could fall under this definition include:
  1. UCITS Management companies that manage at least one AIF.
  2. CIFs that manage at least one AIF.
  3. Investment firms of third countries that manage at least one AIF established in Cyprus.
  4. Self-managed AIFs.
Sub threshold AIFMs must in accordance with article 4(3)(d) of the Alternative Fund Managers Law of 2013 provide regularly, annually as set by Article 5(5) of the EU Regulation 231/2013, to the CySEC specific information on the AIFs they manage. The specific information to be provided is determined in article 110(1) of the EU Regulation 231/2013. Authorised AIFMs of the Republic must in accordance with Article 31 of the Alternative Fund Managers Law of 2013 provide regularly to the CySEC detailed information on the AIFs they manage (Article 31(1),(2) and (4)) or market in the EU (Article 31(2)), as specified in Article 110(1)(2) of the EU Regulation 231/2013.

The frequency of the reporting for authorized AIFMs depends on the value of assets under management in portfolios of AIFs managed by a given AIFM as determined in Article 110(3) of the EU Regulation 231/2013.

The deadline for the submission of the information is one month after the end of the reporting period. Where the AIF is a fund of funds this period may be extended by the AIFM by 15 days.

The CySEC recommends that AIFMs read carefully the ESMA Q&As on the Application of the AIFMD and the EMSA Guidelines on reporting obligations under Articles 3(3)(d) and 24(1), (2) and (4) of the AIFMD. Both documents are available on the CySEC’s website under Regulatory Framework, Collective Investment and Managers, AIFM under the European Regulatory Framework section. The data must be completed in the English language and information marked as optional has to be reported if the AIFM has information to report.
