Finansinspektionen has passed a decision to change the regulations regarding ownership, owner management and management suitability assessments. Under the new regulations, legal and natural persons must announce all sanction decisions levied against them, including decisions that are older than ten years. The statute of limitation has been removed from the new regulations. The information about the sanction decisions is provided in the forms for ownership, owner management and management suitability and are appendices to FI's regulations (FFFS 2013:10) regarding alternative investment fund managers.
Finansinspektionen also passed a decision under which non-UCITS funds and other alternative investment funds that are marketed to retail investors in Sweden are not subject to the new requirements in FFFS 2013:9 with regard to the content of prospectuses for investment funds.
The new regulations enter into force on 1 November 2016. Amendment 2016:27
