New rules governing authorised funds investing in “inherently illiquid assets” will come into force later this year. They are wide-ranging and will affect NURS with direct or indirect holdings in illiquid assets – such as property.
Key amongst the FCA’s package of measures are new rules governing fund suspensions, requirements for enhanced illiquidity contingency plans and significant new disclosure requirements.
Now is the time for all authorised fund managers to review their funds’ holdings, gauge the applicability of the new rules, and take action where appropriate.
This guide aims to:
- summarise the background to the new rules;
- detail the types of funds that will be affected by the new rules;
- explain new regulatory concepts: FIIAs and “inherently illiquid assets”;
- explain is set to change under the new rules; and
- suggest what authorised fund managers should be doing now.
