The Pensions Board has recently issued a consultation paper on the future of defined contribution schemes in Ireland. This is the first stage in a process to establish a framework over the next twenty years. The consultation paper can be viewed here. Once the findings have been published we will be publishing our view on the same.
The Central Bank have a number of consultation papers ongoing at the moment. CP 68 deals with alternative funds under Alternative Investments Fund Management Directive (AIFMD) and unit trust schemes under the Unit Trust Act 1990 (including Exempt Unit Trusts, REITs etc.). This is an area of interest for many MiFID Firms and Trustee Companies and we will be posting any relevant submissions. The consultation paper can be viewed here.
If you have any comments or questions regarding these consultation papers, please do not hesitate to contact us.
