28/06/2012 2012/406 Draft Guidelines on sound remuneration policies under the AIFMD Consultation Paper PDF
1.03 MB
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.

Date: 04 December 2012ESMA/2012/801PRESS RELEASEESMA finalises guidelines on repo arrangements for UCITS fundsThe European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has today published its final guidelines on repurchase and reverse repurchase agreements for UCITS funds.  The guidelines state that UCITS should only enter into such agreements if they are able to recall at any time any assets or the full amount of cash.Key elements of the guidelines are:•    For repurchase arrangements, UCITS should be able to recall at any time the assets subject to such arrangements; •    For reverse repurchase agreements, UCITS should be able to recall at any time the full amount of cash on either an accrued or a mark-to-market basis.  However, when cash is recalled on a mark-to-market basis, the mark-to-market value of the reverse repurchase agreements should be used for the calculation of the net asset value of the UCITS; and•    ESMA considers fixed-term repurchase and reverse repurchase agreements that do not exceed seven days as arrangements that allow the assets to be recalled at any time by the UCITS.The guidelines will now be translated into all EU languages and will be incorporated into ESMA’s Guidelines on ETFs and other UCITS issues, published in July 2012.  The full set of guidelines will enter into force two months after the publication of the translations.  This will result in a comprehensive framework for UCITS that will increase transparency and investor protection and contributes to safeguarding the stability of financial markets. Notes for editors1.    ESMA is an independent EU Authority that was established on 1 January 2011 and works closely with the other European Supervisory Authorities responsible for banking (EBA), and insurance and occupational pensions (EIOPA), and the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB).2.    ESMA’s mission is to enhance the protection of investors and promote stable and well-functioning financial markets in the European Union (EU).  As an independent institution, ESMA achieves this aim by building a single rule book for EU financial markets and ensuring its consistent application across the EU.  ESMA contributes to the regulation of financial services firms with a pan-European reach, either through direct supervision or through the active co-ordination of national supervisory activity.Further information:David CliffeSenior Communications Officer Tel:   +33 (0)1 58 36 43 24 Mob: +33 6 42 48 29 06Email: press@esma.europa.eu
