The Central Bank of Ireland has improved certain aspects of the authorisation and post-authorisation process for UCITS and Retail AIFs
The Central Bank of Ireland (Central Bank) has improved certain aspects of the authorisation and post-authorisation process for UCITS and Retail AIFs. The Central Bank will no longer carry out a prior review in relation to:
- the establishment of new share classes
- depositary agreements
- trust deeds (for unit trusts)
- deeds of constitution (for CCFs)
- (most) UCITS financial indices
This is subject to receipt of relevant Central Bank application forms and written confirmations.
The Central Bank has also issued an application form for UCITS merger applications which reflects the requirements under the UCITS Regulations 2011 and does not introduce any new requirements.
