Investment Funds - Guidelines of the Committee of European Securities Regulators (CESR) concerning eligible assets for investment by UCITS

The CSSF has issued on 26 November 2008 circular 08/380 in relation to the CESR's guidelines concerning eligible assets for investment by UCITS. This Circular replaces circular 08/339.
The only amendment that has been made compared to circular 08/339 is point 24 paragraph 1. The amended paragraph reads as follows: “Techniques and instruments relating to transferable securities and money market instruments include, but are not limited to, collateral under the provisions of directive 2002/47/EC on financial collateral arrangements, repurchase agreements, guarantees received, and securities lending. The requirement to comply with the provisions of Article 21 of Directive 85/611/EEC imply in particular that if UCITS are authorized to use repurchase agreements or securities lending, these operations must be taken into account to calculate the global exposure of the UCITS.”
