  • CIR 13.8.2

    To determine whether a DepositG or DebentureG is of high quality for the purposes of CIR Rule 13.8.1(2)(a), a Fund ManagerG of a Money Market FundG must carry out due diligence to an adequate standard on the DepositG or DebentureG , taking into account the following factors:

    (a) the credit quality of the IssuerG , and any guarantor, of the InvestmentG ;
    (b) the nature and quality of the asset class represented by the InvestmentG ;
    (c) the liquidity of the InvestmentG ; and
    (d) any other risks associated with the InvestmentG or the market in which it is traded.

    • CIR 13.8.2 Guidance

      1. A Fund ManagerG must carry out the due diligence required under CIR Rule 13.8.2 as part of its internal procedures. However, this does not prevent it from using a service provider to carry out the necessary due diligence, provided the outsourcing requirements in these Rules are met.
      2. A Fund ManagerG will not meet the due diligence requirements in the Rule if it relies solely on credit ratings issued by a credit rating agency. This is because assessment of credit quality is only part of the due diligence required under the Rule.
      3. A Fund ManagerG should keep appropriate records of the due diligence it has conducted on an InvestmentG to demonstrate that it has complied with the Rule.
