The revised Fund Manager Code of Conduct (FMCC) will be effective on 17 November 2018. How ready are fund managers for achieving compliance? This newsletter series will touch on some areas which we believe will present challenges for industry players, as well as highlighting some key considerations fund managers should take into account in their compliance journey.

Edition 5 - 21 September 2018

The fifth edition of our revised FMCC newsletter series focuses on enhanced codified requirements for Fund Managers, who have responsibility for the overall operation of a fund, over the custody of fund assets (fund in this context includes both collective investment schemes and discretionary accounts). Within the newsletter we touch on five core areas, including (i) what Fund Managers should consider during the evaluation of prospective custodians; (ii) a Fund Manager's obligation to ensure an appropriate custody agreement is in place; (iii) a Fund Manager's responsibility for monitoring the performance of a custodian on an ongoing basis; (iv) disclosure requirements to investors; and (v) obligations where self-custody of assets is adopted.

 

Edition 4 - 7 September 2018

The fourth edition of our revised FMCC newsletter series focuses on enhanced codified requirements around risk management. Within the newsletter we highlight the five risk management areas where Fund Managers will need to review their existing policies and procedures. We also emphasise the requirement for Fund Managers to perform periodic stress testing as well as periodic reviews of the continued effectiveness of established risk management policies and procedures.


Edition 3 - 24 August 2018

Our third edition focuses on two areas. Firstly, the newly enacted requirement for Fund Managers, responsible for the overall operations of the funds they manage, to ensure that an annual independent audit of those funds' financial statements is completed. Secondly, the existing requirement that a Fund Manager should maintain an independent function (internal or external) to review and report on the adequacy, effectiveness and efficiency of the Fund Manager’s management, operations and internal controls.

Edition 2 - 10 August 2018

This second edition focuses on enhanced requirements for Fund Managers within the revised FMCC over their valuation policies, procedures and controls, including the requirement to appoint a functionally independent party to execute an annual review. It further builds on our outlined potential roadmap for industry players to follow on their path to complying with the revised FMCC.

 

Edition 1 - 27 July 2018

This first edition focuses on some of the key requirements within the revised FMCC which are relevant to Discretionary Account (DA) managers. It further outlines a potential roadmap for industry players to follow on their path to complying with the revised FMCC.
