Investment firm Regulation and Directive - Impact and timeline for Investment firms (IFR/IFD)

On December 5, 2019, the DIRECTIVE (EU) 2019/2034 and REGULATION (EU) 2019/2033 on the prudential requirements of investment firms (IFD & IFR) were published and the implementation timeline starts as from June 26, 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. Also, new liquidity requirements, remuneration rules, internal governance, disclosure and reporting requirements will be introduced. This new framework was designed and specifically tailored to the business models of the investment firms.
