EU Risk Retention Rules and CLOs – the Journey’s End?

The EU’s risk retention framework will come into effect next week, marking the end of a long legislative process. The new capital requirements regulation (CRR) of the European Union (EU) and the accompanying directive became effective on 1 January 2014. The related Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS, together with the CRR, the CRR risk retention rules) will come into effect on 3 July 2014.
