LawCards Upgrade for new Leverage Calculation
To address the new AIFMD regulations introduced by the EU, the European LawCards for investment compliance have been updated and enhanced by Princeton Financial Systems. Responding to the new reporting requirements of the AIFMD has presented several challenges to implement the new rules. Over the course of past several months, Princeton Financial Systems has issued updates on the European LawCards for its investment compliance system MIG21. LawCards are standardized rule sets powering MIG21 covering investment regulations of the major financial markets.
The updates include extensions for the ESMA guideline 2012/832 and the new leverage calculation rules for AIFM and UCITS. Both leverage calculation methods, the gross method and the commitment method have been implemented.For countries such as Germany and the United Kingdom the former old investment acts have been replaced by new investment rule books, which required Princeton Financial Systems to create new LawCards for these countries. For several other countries such as France, Luxembourg and Ireland, an extension to the existing rules was sufficient to bring the LawCards in line with the new regulations.
