Addressing EU Restrictions on Remuneration - Part II

AIFMD Remuneration Code Implementation Planning
8 October 2013
Presenters: Philip J. Morgan

On 8 October 2013, K&L Gates hosted the second in a series of seminars addressing issues relating to EU remuneration restrictions.

This seminar focused on the implementation of the Remuneration Code under the EU Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive ("AIFMD") addressing practical issues in relation to the design of remuneration packages for investment management professionals.

We dealt in particular with the following questions:

  • Are there any ways I could avoid this altogether?
  • When do I need to worry about this?
  • How do I minimise the impact on my business?
  • How should we assess the impact of the proportionate application of the Code to our business?
  • How should we reward appropriate risk-taking?
  • How do we ensure that our remuneration structures are tax efficient?
  • How should we best plan our firm's response to the Code?

This seminar was of particular interest to senior managers, legal and compliance personnel in investment management firms, and firms providing services to investment managers.

We were delighted to present on this topic in conjunction with representatives of Abbiss Cadres and Towers Watson. Abbiss Cadres is a leading niche law firm which advises on the legal and tax structuring of executive remuneration and incentives. Towers Watson, amongst many other things, offers consultancy services in relation to the design of executive pay and incentivisation structures.
