Abstract [en]

On June 8, 2011 the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) was adopted. As a result, the regulatory approach to the private equity regulation was significantly changed – from no regulation to its overregulation. I analyze to which extent private equity fund investor protection should be provided at the legislative level. I consider private equity fund investors not as a homogenous group but as several different ones where each of them has own interests. I also examine what is the most cost-effective regulatory approach to private equity regulation, taking into account interests of private equity fund investors and capital market efficiency. I argue that the AIFMD provides an overprotection of private equity fund investors to the harm of capital market efficiency. I consider co-regulation as the best regulatory approach to private equity regulation.
