Esma Cooperation Agreements Brexit

The AEMF and the European Securities Commissions have therefore reached an agreement with the UK FCA MoUs to cover future cooperation and information exchange. For more information, click here. However, the existence of cooperation agreements is only one of the requirements for delegation to third-country companies. In this regard, funds and fund managers may be interested in the fact that the European Commission has updated, on 7 July 2020, its communication to stakeholders, which the UK withdraws, and EU asset management legislation (here). This communication also addresses the issue of delegation agreements and reminds stakeholders of the importance of ensuring that transfer agreements do not result in the creation of mailboxes. The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the European Financial Markets Authority, urges financial market players to complete preparations and implement appropriate contingency plans before the end of the UK transition period on 31 December 2020. The AEMF also confirms that the Memorandums of Understanding for Cooperation and Information Exchange with the British Financial Conduct Authority (ACF) remain valid and will come into force at the end of the transition period. On 1 February 2019, the AEMF and the EU`s national financial market supervisors announced that the soft forces were in cooperation and in exchange for information with the UK CMA in case the UK left the EU without a withdrawal agreement. On 31 January 2020, at midnight, when the withdrawal agreement came into force and the UK came into force a transitional period during which EU legislation continues to apply to the UK and the UK, these pecos were not obliged to enter into force. These agreements cover the content of regulatory cooperation agreements necessary to enable transfer to the UK through UCITS and managers, as well as outsourcing under miFID. Indeed, the multilateral agreement with the EU and the NCAs will allow the outsourcing and delegation of fund managers to continue to be carried out by ENTITIes established in the United Kingdom on behalf of counterparties established in the EEA. This is an important milestone for post-Brexit delegation agreements and clarity for asset managers who want to conclude contingency plans. The AEMF statement also called on financial market participants to complete preparations and implement appropriate contingency plans before the end of the transition period, and also said it would continue to review its statements on Brexit, including on operational issues.
She will continue to communicate when the time comes. The AEMF, the EU`s national financial market supervisory authorities and the ACA confirm that these measures adopted in 2019 remain relevant and proportionate to ensure good cooperation and continuous exchange of information and will come into force at the end of the transition period, which is due to expire on 31 December 2020. On 1 February 2019, the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and the European Financial Markets Supervisors` Authority agreed with the ACF on declarations of intent if the UK left the EU without a withdrawal agreement. On 1 February 2019, we announced the Cooperation and Information Exchange Agreement with the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) and EU regulators on cooperation and information exchange in case the UK leaves the EU without a withdrawal agreement.
