23/07/2015 2015/1172 Guidelines on sound remuneration policies under the UCITS Directive and AIFMD Consultation Paper PDF
1.09 MB
Reasons for publication Article 14a(4) of Directive 2009/65/EC (“UCITS Directive”), as amended by Directive 2014/91/EU (“UCITS V Directive”) provides that ESMA shall issue guidelines addressed to competent authorities or financial market participants concerning the application of the remuneration principles set out under Article 14b of the UCITS Directive (“UCITS Remuneration Guidelines”). This consultation paper represents the first step in the development of the guidelines on remuneration policies required by the UCITS V Directive and sets out ESMA’s formal proposals for these guidelines. This consultation paper also proposes a targeted revision of the Guidelines on sound remuneration policies under the AIFMD (ESMA/2013/232) (“AIFMD Remuneration Guidelines”), which were published on 3 July 2013. Contents Section 2 explains the background to this document, while Section 3 explains the working method followed by ESMA while developing the draft guidelines. Sections 4 to 7 provide an overview of the content of the draft guidelines focusing on the main areas of difference between the requirements on remuneration under Directive 2011/61/EU (“AIFMD”) and UCITS V Directive. Annex I provides for a comparison table where the relevant UCITS V provisions on remuneration are marked up against the AIFMD provisions. Annex II sets out the list of questions contained in this paper. Annex III includes the draft cost-benefit analysis for the guidelines, while Annex IV sets out the text of the draft UCITS Remuneration guidelines and Annex V sets out the proposed amendment to the AIFMD Remuneration Guidelines. Next Steps ESMA will consider the feedback it receives to this consultation with a view to finalising the UCITS Remuneration Guidelines and publishing a final report by early Q1 2016, ahead of the transposition deadline for the UCITS V Directive (i.e. 18 March 2016). The final report is expected to also include the revision of the AIFMD Remuneration Guidelines which is proposed in the present paper. The consultation period will run until 23 October 2015.
