EU Remuneration


The various EU legislative regimes all set specific remuneration requirements on AIFMs, UCITS management companies and investment firms. The remuneration requirements under the IFR/IFD will enter into force on 26 June 2021. These include the requirement to identify categories of staff whose professional activities have a material impact on an investment firm’s risk profile or assets it manages, the possible alternatives arrangements that are appropriate to be used for the purposes of variable remuneration, and guidelines on sound remuneration policies.

The AIFMD and UCITS Directive also impose various remuneration requirements, links to which can be found in the Official Texts on EU Remuneration section below.

IFR/IFD remuneration requirements, effective as of 26 June 2021, will apply to the remuneration year commencing January 2022.
