In the summer of 2010 ESMA started looking into the operation of UCITS making use of the new investment freedoms introduced by the UCITS III Directive and the Eligible Assets Directive (2007/16/EC) in order to identify the possible impact on investor protection and market integrity. As part of this work, ESMA published a discussion paper on policy orientations on guidelines for UCITS Exchange-Traded Funds and Structured UCITS on 22 July 2011 (ESMA/2011/220), responses to which were due by 22 September. This consultation paper represents the next stage in the development of ESMA guidelines in this area.

The purpose of this document is to promote common supervisory approaches and practices in the application of the guidelines on a Common Definition of European Money Market Funds developed by CESR by providing responses to questions posed by the general public and competent authorities. The content of this document is aimed at competent authorities to ensure that in their supervisory activities their actions are converging along the lines of the responses adopted by ESMA. However, the answers are also intended to help management companies by providing clarity as to the content of CESR’s guidelines on a Common Definition of European Money Market Funds, rather than creating an extra layer of requirements.

Annex II of the AIFMD establishes a set of rules (largely inspired from the provisions of Directive 2006/48/EC, the “CRD”) with which AIFMs have to comply when establishing and applying the remuneration policies for certain categories of their staff. Article 13(2) of the AIFMD requires ESMA to develop guidelines on sound remuneration policies which comply with Annex II of the AIFMD. This consultation paper represents the first step in the elaboration of the guidelines on remuneration policies required by the AIFMD and sets out ESMA’s formal proposals for these guidelines.Responses to this consultation paper will be taken into account by ESMA in finalising the guidelines on sound remuneration policies under the AIFMD. In finalising the guidelines, ESMA will also take into account the development of its work on the separate set of guidelines, which will be complementary to the CEBS Guidelines, focused on remuneration policies of investment firms from an investor protection point of view, for which a separate consultation paper will be published at the end of Q3 2012. ESMA aims to adopt the final text of the guidelines on sound remuneration policies under the AIFMD in Q4 2012.
