Private Equity Newsletter – April 12, 2012

This issue includes the article “The EU Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive: Where are we now?” which discusses how, with the AIFMD settled nearly a year ago, the European Commission looks to advance to “Level 2,” which will move towards implementing the regime into each country’s national law. Also featured is “CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme: Steps Towards Simplification,” which states that criticisms of the UK CRC Energy Efficiency Scheme have been taken into consideration, and simplification proposals have been published, which if adopted, could simplify administration for private equity-backed portfolio companies.
