The Imam at this mainstream mosque, with a congregation of one thousand, told her “that’s not going to be a problem”. The Al Quba Mosque and Shahporan Islamic centre and the Imam were approached for comment but have not responded to the programme. Around 400 schoolchildren mainly girls from South Asian communities – are forced into marriage every year in the UK, according to official Government figures. The vast majority of forced marriages of British children happen abroad, according to official statistics. But the Exposure investigation has been told by experts in the field that children as young as 10 are being forced into marriage in the UK. “Meera” said she was married in the UK when she was 15-years-old. She told the programme she found the experience so devastating that she has not been able to tell her friends or family, and she remains trapped in her forced marriage, 40 years on. Nazir Afzal, Chief Crown Prosecutor for the CPS North West, told Exposure that “forced marriage is probably the last form of slavery in the UK”. He said: The law in this country is very straight forward, that you cant marry until youre 16, also that you cant engage in sexual activity consensually until you are the age of 16.

UK AIFMs The TP is currently in place for existing UK AIFMs, but those caught by the AIFMD should use this time to get ready for 22 July 2014. Amongst other things, a decision needs to be taken as to when the UK AIFM should apply for a variation of permission (VOP) to manage AIFs. The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) wants applications from UK AIFMs to be submitted by January 2014. If a firm is not ready for full implementation of the AIFMD, or the passport is not required immediately, the VOP should make it clear that the variation is required to be effective on 22nd July 2014, because without this, technically the AIFMD will apply in full from the date the VOP is granted. The upside is that once the permission has been granted, the passport will be available in other member states. We can assist with the drafting of the VOP. Sub-threshold UK AIFMs will need to apply for a VOP to manage AIFs, and will need to register as small registered UK AIFMs by 22 July 2014. They will need to comply with information requirements, but will not benefit from the passport unless they opt in to the full requirements of the AIFMD. However, sub-threshold managers of European venture capital funds may be able to use a passport under the European Venture Capital Funds Regulation (EuECVA Regulations), if they comply with the requirements in the Regulations, some of which mirror AIFMD requirements. We can assist firms with calculating their AUM to determine whether they are subthreshold firms, and with determining whether the EuECVA Regulations are a viable option. To the extent that they aren’t aware already, firms should be aware that, whilst it is possible to be both a UCITs manager and an AIFM, an AIFMD manager cannot be both a MiFID firm and a manager of an AIFM (unlike a UCITs manager, which can be UCITs investment firms a managing third-party funds in addition to their own UCITs funds).

What should UK and non EU AIFMs be doing now and how can we help?
