ESMA’s statistical report on EU Alternative Investment Funds

On 10 January 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority published its statistical report on European Union Alternative Investment Funds (AIF). The study found that the EU AIF sector in 2018, amounted to €5.8tn or nearly 40 per cent of the total EU fund industry. The report is based on data from 30,357 AIFs, or almost 100 per cent of the market. The report includes three sections covering Market Monitoring; Statistical Methods and AIF statistics.

The primary objective of this data analysis is to contribute to ESMA’s risk assessment, to facilitate entity oversight by supervisory authorities, both national and European, and enhance supervisory convergence.

ESMA achieves its mission within the European System of Financial Supervision (ESFS) through active cooperation with the European Banking Authority (EBA), the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA), the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB), and with national authorities with competencies in securities markets (NCAs).
