  • FCA: Review of property funds and liquidity risks

    20/07/2017
    FCA has published the results of a review undertaken following the post-Brexit vote suspension in dealing affecting property and unit linked... funds. FCA also looked at other firms across value chain, including depositaries, platform providers, wealth managers and financial advisers to see how they deal with liquidity risks. FCA sets out its findings by sector and notes that all firms that were affected by either the suspension of property funds or the application of fair value pricing adjustments will need to review how they dealt with this event and consider whether there are any improvements that could be made that would enable them to deal more effectively with a similar market event. FCA notes that the findings of our review will be considered alongside the responses to DP17/1 (illiquid assets and open-ended investment funds) and states that the response to the DP, including whether the current regulatory regime may need to be revised, will be summarised in a FS at a later date.
