The European Commission is consulting on the cross-border distribution of funds in the EU and how the process can be improved. The areas on which the Commission is seeking feedback include the following: (i) marketing restrictions in Member States that might impede cross-border distribution; (ii) barriers encountered when trying to make use of online platforms to distribute funds; (iii) distribution costs and regulatory fees that might be viewed as barriers to cross-border distribution; and (iv) cost and time implications when competent authorities need to be notified of changes to fund documentation. Comments are invited by 2 October 2016.
