Financial Services partner Neil Robson was quoted in HFM Week about lack of access to the Financial Conduct Authority’s Annex IV platform for non-UK Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFMs) marketing in the UK just weeks before the submission deadline. While the platform began accepting reports for UK-based managers on October 20, 2014, Neil noted that none of his US clients authorized under Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive are able to use it. He added, "November has gone, December has gone, and still, as far as I can see, no US AIFMs who registered under Article 42 have got login details."  ("UK Annex IV Platform Still Not Accepting Non-UK AIFMs," January 15, 2015)
