  1. (1)

    requirements that must be met by the originator, the sponsor or the original lender, for an AIFM to be allowed to invest on behalf of the AIF in securities or other financial instruments of this type issued after 1 January 2011; and

  2. (2)

    qualitative requirements that must be met by AIFMs which invest in these securities or other financial instruments on behalf of the AIF.
