Abstract

UCITS III has direct implications on risk management activities of asset managers. On 13 February 2004, German regulators published a derivatives ordinance German Derivateverodnung, Derivate V being the first regulatory body throughout Europe to implement the EU regulation into local law. Since the first draft was issued in late November 2003, the finance industry faced open questions implementing a reasonable approach for managing other peoples money. Until BaFin, the German regulator, held a presentation to clarify their intents, the new regulation was seen as overkill for most asset managers. Since then, opinions have changed in that many industry representatives detect opportunities in the regulation. Full compliance with the proposed qualified approach still implies further investments in the risk management architecture, but the approach is now seen as reasonable.
