Regulatory Update: European MMFs Regulation

CP18/4: The European Money Market Funds (MMFs) Regulation

As a consequence of the Money Markets Funds ( MMFs ) Regulation, new MMFs will be captured from 21st July 2018, with existing MMFs impacted from 21st January 2019. The FCA is therefore making Handbook revisions and has published Consultation Paper 18/4 – ‘The European Money Markets Funds (MMF) Regulation’. This paper proposes revisions to the Collective Investment Schemes (COLL) Sourcebook, also noting that it intends to leave references to ‘Qualifying Money Market Fund’ in COLL and CASS 7.13 to reflect MiFIR and MiFID II.

Similarly, references to ‘Designated Money Market Fund’ under BIPRU 12 will remain unchanged.

The deadline for review comments on CP18/4 is 23rd March 2018.
