INDOS talks to COO Connect about AIFMD depositary developments

Almost four months have passed since the end of the AIFMD transitional period on 22 July 2014. COO Connect talked to INDOS Financial’s Bill Prew about:

  • how the AIFMD depositary requirements are working in practice;
  • the demand for depositary services since 22 July;
  • whether concerns in the run up to AIFMD about the costs of depositary services were justified;
  • the level of awareness and interest being shown by fund investors in the role of the depositary; and
  • expected future developments.
