The Securitisation Regulation and Alternative Investment Funds: Friends or Foes?

In 2019, the European securitisation landscape became subject to a major overhaul when the Regulation (EU) 2017/2402 of 12 December 2017 laying down a general framework for securitisation and creating a specific framework for simple, transparent and standardised securitisation entered into force. The aim of the Securitisation Regulation is essentially to consolidate the legal framework governing European securitisations. This chapter will focus on whether this specific regulation should be applicable to AIFs as issuers and securitisation special purpose entities.
