EU Savings Directive - Be prepared for phase II | Brochure


Review of the current directive – important changes
coming up

EU Savings Directive | Be prepared for phase IIThe EU Savings Directive (EUSD) entered into force on 1 July 2005. However, a review process of this directive has been running for several years with an aim to ‘close the loopholes’ of the current EUSD. This process resulted in European Commission proposals for a reviewed EUSD. The main proposed changes are:

  • Reinforced look-through rules for payments to certain non-EU entities and trusts
  • Broadened concept of EU ‘residual entities’ for which the EUSD is applicable
  • Substantial extension of the scope of the EUSD to all regulated investment funds (including, eg. non-UCITS SICAV, SIF-SICAV and SICAR)
  • Extension of the EUSD to certain types of life insurance products

When will this apply?

If the amended EUSD is approved in 2011, the new rules will apply as from 1 January 2014. Time to reflect on the changes and their impact on your products and systems.

Who is impacted?

Compared to the EUSD currently in force, an enlarged panel of actors will be impacted by the amended EUSD update: banks, insurance companies, transfer agents, fund administrators, but also insurance companies, a series of legal structures, etc.
