CSSF implements IOSCO recommendation on liquidity risk management for investment funds

8 January 2020

Regulatory News Alert

On 20 December 2019, the Commission de surveillance du secteur financier (CSSF) published Circular 19/733 (the Circular) with the objective to implement into Luxembourg regulation, the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) recommendations and good practices on liquidity risk management for undertakings for collective investment (UCIs).

As provided in our previous alert on the topic, the IOSCO recommendations laid out to entities responsible for managing the liquidity of the collective investment schemes, are to ensure that liquidity is managed to safeguard and protect the interests of investors, including in stressed market conditions.

The IOSCO recommendations address in particular the following elements of the liquidity risk management process:

  • The design process of UCIs
  • The day-to-day liquidity management of UCIs 
  • Contingency planning.

The CSSF Circular defines the scope of application of the IOSCO recommendations and outlines immediate and mandatory compliance by in-scope entities with the recommendations and related IOSCO good practices for the implementation of a robust and effective liquidity risk management process for each of their managed open-ended UCIs.
