The FCA’s second Consultation Paper (CP21/7) on the IFPR was published yesterday in the run-up to the implementation of a new prudential regime for MiFID investment firms from January 2022.
This CP includes additional proposals and further details on:
own funds requirements, including the methods for calculating K-factors;
types of assets that can be utilised to meet the liquidity requirement;
the method for calculating, through the ICARA process, the own funds and liquid assets to be held on top of the required capital;
governance and senior management rules;
remuneration rules; and
reduced reporting requirements.
The FCA intends to incorporate most of the prudential requirements for investment firms in a newly formed ‘MIFIDPRU’ prudential sourcebook. A third, and final, Consultation Paper is expected in the next quarter.
