ECON has published its draft report on the proposals to amend the UCITS Directives in respect of depository functions, remuneration and sanctions (UCITS V). The changes:

  • extend the range of individuals subject to the remuneration rules and limit the circumstances in which fixed variable remuneration is allowed;
  • clarify the circumstances in which investors may lose out following depository failure; and
  • bring the proposals into line with the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD).
