AIMA Regulatory Deep Dive Programme - Ireland
The session will provide an overview of the current Irish regulatory environment as it relates to asset managers, focussing on recent developments and upcoming deadlines. Will be discussed new AMLD-derived requirements on beneficial ownership for financial vehicles, along with other Irish-specific aspects of the European AML framework. The webinar will also consider the Central Bank’s guidance on outsourcing, and the main features and likely timing of the proposed new individual accountability framework (including SEAR). From an authorisations and approvals perspective, we will look at the Central Bank’s current approach to QIAIF and investment manager approvals and the appointment of third-country AIFMs.
AIMA Regulatory Deep Dive Programme
AIMA are hosting a programme of country-specific regulatory review sessions that cover the changes in the relevant country’s regulation and enforcement in the trailing six months and any pending or future country-specific developments that are anticipated in the next six months.
Each session will cover topics with respect to the country providing requirements, guidance, enforcement that affects solely asset managers that are established there. The sessions will be of interest to manager members who would be interested in that country because they:
- Manage or sub-manage funds established in that country;
- Market funds or portfolio management services in that country; or
- Invest in issuers established in that country or traded in that country.
