Why we are consulting

The paper is relevant to all of the Authority’s stakeholders. It is particularly relevant to fee payers under the Collective Investment Schemes Act 2008, Designated Businesses (Registration and Oversight) Act 2015, Financial Services Act 2008, Insurance Act 2008 and Retirement Benefits Schemes Act 2000.


The closing date for comments is 22 January 2021.

We recommend that you set aside between 30 minutes to an hour given the length and complexity of the survey.

What happens next

Following closure of the discussion period, the Authority will review the responses received and publish a Feedback Statement document on the Authority’s website and the Isle of Man Government’s Consultation Hub in the first quarter of 2021.

The responses to this Discussion Paper will be used to inform development of a PIFM. Depending on the responses received, the Authority may issue a further Discussion Paper before consulting on more specific aspects of the PIFM.

Respondents are encouraged to consider the separate Consultation Paper (CP20-03/T14) that was issued on 16 October 2020 on proposed increases to all fees payable to the Authority from 1 April 2021 and 1 April 2022. The fee increases proposed in that Consultation Paper are to cover the cost of additional resources allocated in the 2020-21 Budget and to start the transition towards a PIFM. Responses to that Consultation Paper are required by 11 December 2020.
