This paper explains the role of system-based solutions in complying with Ireland's Client Asset and Investor Money Regulations.
The Central Bank of Ireland's Client Asset and Investor Money Regulations are a blend of broad principles and detailed guidance put in place to ensure a firm is exerting adequate governance over client money and asset protection.
These regulations are implemented through two statutory instruments:
- SI 104 for Investment Companies - Since 1st October 2015
- SI 105 for Fund Service Providers (FSPs) - Since 1st April 2015
Regulated firms are required to appoint a senior executive. These roles are designated as PCF45 Head of Client Asset Oversight (HCAO) and PCF46 Head of Investor Money Oversight (HIMO) for investment managers and FSPs respectively.
