ESMA launches a Common Supervisory Action with NCAs on UCITS liquidity risk management

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU’s securities markets regulator,  is launching a Common Supervisory Action (CSA) with national competent authorities (NCAs) on the supervision of UCITS’ managers liquidity risk management across the European Union (EU).  The CSA will be conducted during 2020.

The UCITS regulatory framework includes a broad range of liquidity risk management provisions which aim at ensuring  that UCITS investors are able to redeem their investments on request. Compliance with the UCITS liquidity risk management rules contributes to ensuring financial stability, investor protection and the orderly functioning of financial markets.

 In support of this aim, NCAs agreed to assess simultanously whether market participants in their jurisdictions adhere to the rules in their day-to-day business. This will be done on the basis of a common methodology developed together with ESMA. The CSA assessment framework, including scope, methodology, supervisory expectations and timeline, results from a joint effort to carry out comprehensive supervisory action in a convergent manner.

 The first stage of the CSA will involve NCAs requesting quantitative data from a large majority of the UCITS managers based in their respective Member States, to get an overview of the supervisory risks faced.
