Gepostet von am Sep 19, 2021 in Allgemein | Keine Kommentare

On 1 February 2019, ESMA and the EU`s national financial market supervisors announced the MoUs agreement with the UK FCA to cover cooperation and exchange of information in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a withdrawal agreement. At midnight (Central European Time) on 31 January 2020, when the Withdrawal Agreement entered into force and the United Kingdom entered a transition period during which EU legislation remains in force in the United Kingdom and the United Kingdom, these slacks did not have to enter into force. The UK`s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has confirmed a number of agreements with European regulators. ESMA and the European Financial Market Authorities have therefore concluded an agreement with the UK FCA to cover future cooperation and exchange of information. For more information, click here. ESMA, the EU national securities market regulators and the FCA confirm that they remain relevant and appropriate to ensure good cooperation and exchange of information, and that they will enter into force at the end of the transition period expiring on 31 December 2020. The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU`s financial market market regulator, urges financial market participants to complete the preparations and implement the appropriate contingency plans before the end of the transitional period of the United Kingdom (United Kingdom) on 31 December 2020. ESMA also confirms that previous Memoranda of Understanding on cooperation and exchange of information with the United Kingdom`s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) will remain valid and enter into force at the end of the transitional period. However, the existence of cooperation agreements is only one of the conditions that must be fulfilled when transferring to third-country bodies. In this context, funds and fund managers may be interested in the fact that on 7 July 2020 the European Commission updated its Communication on the withdrawal of UK stakeholders and EU asset management rules (here). This Communication also addresses the issue of delegation agreements and reminds stakeholders of the importance of ensuring that delegation agreements do not lead to the creation of mailbox facilities. The MO cover the content of regulatory cooperation agreements necessary to enable delegation to the United Kingdom under UCITS and IFFs, as well as outsourcing under MiFID. Indeed, the multilateral declaration of intent with the EU and THE CIAs will allow fund managers to continue to outsource and delegate fund managers by UK-based companies on behalf of counterparties established in the EEA.
