Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich BWL - Investition und Finanzierung, Note: 2,0, Technische Universität München, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In this seminar paper, I demonstrate and evaluate proposals for the regulation of VC and PE including HF in Germany, Europe and the United States (US) after the global financial crisis. In the first chapter of the main part, I describe the impacts of the financial crisis on PE and VC. In the second part, a short overview of the present regulatory framework in Germany, Europe and the United States is presented. The core of this seminar paper will be chapter 4, 5 and 6 in which proposals and its assessment for a regulation of PE and VC after the financial crisis are exposed, especially the so-called Alternative Investment Fund ManagerDirective (AIFMD), an European initiative to regulate fund manger's activities. Further, the estimation of the AIFMD by the European PE and VC Association (EVCA), the 'Bundesverband Deutscher Kapitalbeteiligungsgesellschaften (BVK)' and the international press will offer an all-embracing appraisal. With an executive summary, I conclude my seminar paper.
