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.
