I have written an article about the coming AIFM Directive for Contrepoints, the libertarian magazine in French language.

The Directive on Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) has the potential to have a great impact on the European economy. One should be concerned that the Directive will result in more costs and extra regulation with negligible benefit arising for the hedge fund industry and the private equity sector, which have already been hit hard by the global financial crisis.  In its current form the AIFM Directive is seriously flawed and has the potential to destroy thousands of jobs in European financial centers.
