IOSCO published updated reports on the IOSCO peer review on regulation of money market funds (MMF) and on the implementation of incentive alignment recommendations for securitization. The reports summarize ongoing efforts of IOSCO in monitoring implementation of reforms for MMF and securitization. The reports cover progress of IOSCO members in FSB jurisdictions in adopting legislation, regulation, and other policies in the G20 priority reform areas, which include MMFs and securitization. IOSCO had published reports on the earlier peer reviews in September 2015.
The MMF report covers valuation practices of MMFs, liquidity management for MMFs, and MMFs that offer a stable Net Asset Value. This report finds that most jurisdictions have implemented the fair-value approach for valuation of MMF portfolios, but progress in liquidity management is less advanced and less even. The securitization report covers incentive alignment arrangements and disclosure requirements. This report finds that, across participating jurisdictions, the overall progress remains mixed in implementing the recommendations for incentive alignment for securitization. The updated reports also make note of new regulations that are yet to come into force or into application in various jurisdictions, which may contribute toward more complete implementation of the IOSCO recommendations for future implementation monitoring exercises.
