CSSF Circular 12/546 | Brochure


Key elements and impacts for UCITS management companies and self-managed SICAVs

CSSF Circular 12/546The Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) issued a circular dated 24 October 2012, covering the authorisation and organisational requirements applicable to UCITS management companies and UCITS self-managed SICAVs.

This circular repeals the previous CSSF circular 03/108, together with the CSSF circular 05/185 supplementing the circular CSSF 03/108, while integrating the CSSF circular 11/508 so that the conditions in relation to the filling/maintaining of the authorisation are included in one unifying circular.

Main changes

Circular 12/546 came into force with immediate effect and describes the substance requirements on various topics such as shareholdership, capital, management bodies, provisions in relation to central administration, internal governance and delegation rules. The concept of “Promotorship” will not be required anymore for the self-managed SICAV’s and UCITS whose management companies comply with the new circular.

Strategic positioning

With the introduction of AIFMD in July 2013, increased UCITS governance requirements and the opportunity to passport UCITS management company services, fund managers are reviewing their strategic positioning and target operating models. Deloitte work with many of the largest and best regarded management companies to identify opportunities, delegation possibilities and product management strategies.
