This PSF Podcast episode is focused on the first IFD/IFR reporting date.
On 22 February 2021 the CSSF confirmed that the XBRL solution will be adopted as a method of collection of the new prudential reporting applicable to investment firms.
The first reporting is to be prepared as of 30 September 2021 for Class 2 investment firms (due by 11 November 2021).
The new regime introduces a new approach to the calculation of the regulatory capital requirements and for most of the investment firms it will result in increased capital needs, subject to transitional phasing-in.
