The implementation of MiFID II and the new regime for asset management companies: the AMF continues its policy updates

The Autorité des Marchés Financiers (French Financial Markets Authority or AMF) is continuing its policy updates to account for the impact of MiFID II's implementation and the creation of two separate legal structures for asset management companies (AMCs) and investment firms (IFs).

14 policy documents have been updated. These changes are mostly related to legislative and regulatory references.

14 policy documents updated

The following 14 policy documents have been updated:

Elements of position DOC-2008-16 were inserted into position DOC-2014-04

For simplification purposes, the aspects of position DOC-2008-16 relating to the sale of units or shares of foreign investment funds other than UCITS and AIFs in France were appended to position DOC-2014-04 so as to combine the two documents.

AMF instruction DOC-2003-02 was repealed

The AMF also repealed instruction DOC-2003-02 on debt securitisation funds (FCC). This instruction became obsolete in 2014 following Order no. 2013-676 of 25 July 2013 amending the legal framework for asset management and providing a transition period ending on 22 July 2014, by which time all debt securitisation funds were to become common securitisation funds (FCT).

Four documents were left unchanged

The AMF has already determined that four documents will not be affected by the transposition of the MiFID II directive or by the creation of two separate legal structures for asset management companies (AMCs) and investment firms (IFs). These four documents listed in the table below therefore remain unchanged.

Scope Reference Title
Instruction DOC-2017-06

Procedure for preparing and registering an information document that must be filed with the AMF by intermediaries in miscellaneous assets

Position DOC-2013-11 Remuneration policies for alternative investment fund managers
Instruction DOC-2017-05
