ALFI recommendation on the risk management system for SIFs

Default: Change to:

Pending further clarification to be provided by the CSSF on the regulation in question, the document provides proposals on how market participants may establish and document an adequate risk management system for Special Investment Funds (SIFs).

The recent update of the Special Investment Fund (SIF) Law includes the requirement to have appropriate risk management systems in place to identify, measure, manage and monitor the risks associated with the positions and their contribution to the overall risk profile of the portfolio.

ALFI suggests following a two-step approach when establishing an adequate risk management system for SIFs:

  1. define and document the risk management function;
  2. on the basis of the investment strategy of each SIF, identify the risks and define the appropriate measures, controls, limits and escalation procedures per risk category.
