The move toward stricter regulation of remuneration in the financial services industry in the European Union has resulted in a confusing web of overlapping European Directives and local EU Member State law and regulation, each of which seeks to place limits on remuneration. This client memorandum aims to assist in navigating the new European labyrinth by providing a snapshot of the three main European Directives that regulate remuneration:
- Capital Requirements Directive IV1 (CRD IV);
- Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive2 (AIFMD); and
- fifth Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities Directive3 (UCITS V).
