Legal background

The Cross border distribution framework requires that UCITS management companies must establish a facility in Germany to perform certain tasks, including:

  • processing investor subscription, payment, conversion and redemption orders
  • providing investors with information on how an order can be made and how redemption proceeds are paid;
  • facilitating the handling of information relating to the exercise of investor rights;
  • making investor disclosure documents, periodic reports, KIIDs etc. available for inspection;
  • providing the investors with relevant information about the tasks that the facility performs on a permanent data carrier, and
  • acting as a contact point for communicating with the host member state regulator.

There is no requirement that UCITS management companies have a physical presence in Germany, but the tasks have to be performed in German language.
