The Investor Money Regulations (Central Bank (Supervision and Enforcement) Act 2013 (Section 48(1)) Investor Money Regulations 2015 for Fund Service Providers - SI 105 of 2015) were signed into law on 25 March 2015. The Investor Money Regulations set out requirements in relation to fund service providers holding investor money. The application of the Investor Money Regulations mean that only investor money may be held in a collection account, and investor money must be segregated from the Fund Service Provider’s own money. The Central Bank of Ireland (“The Central Bank”) has decided to postpone the operation date of the Investor Money Regulations from 1 April 2016 to 1 July 2016 subject to certain additional reporting requirements on transition planning.
