FIA EPTA comments on the new Prudential Regime for Investment Firms

3 December 2017

On the basis of Articles 508(2) and (3) of Regulation (EU) No 575/20131 (CRR) the European Commission is drafting a legislative proposal on a prudential regime for investment firms. We welcome the Opinion of the European Banking Authority (EBA) in response to the Commission’s call for advice on investment firms and consider the recommendations to be broadly on the right track to delivering a more proportionate prudential framework. Nevertheless, FIA EPTA members offer the following comments in respect of the recommendations and encourage the Commission to take these into account when finalising its proposal.
