indicate the intention to appoint a manager of a capital management company Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Your capital management company wants to appoint a new managing director? You must notify the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) of this.

Capital management companies have various notification obligations vis-à-vis the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority. Among other things, they must report if they intend to appoint a managing director.

An intention is deemed to be a corresponding decision by the competent body of your company, for example the supervisory board. This is also the case if the selection is subject to the decision of other bodies or the feedback of BaFin.

The duty of disclosure also applies

  • the appointment of a representative as well as
  • the extension of a temporary appointment of a managing director (not of the legal relationship on which the appointment is based).

Managing directors must meet the following criteria:

  • professional suitability,
  • reliability and
  • sufficient time availability

BaFin assesses these criteria on the basis of the documents submitted.

In each case in single copy:

  • Curriculum vitae: signed and dated by the applicant's own hand.
  • Information on the reliability of the managing director: signed and dated in his/her own hand
  • "Certificate of good conduct for submission to a public authority", "European certificate of good conduct for submission to a public authority" or "corresponding documents" from abroad in the original
  • Extract from the Central Trade Register in the original
  • Overview of other mandates as a business manager and in administrative and supervisory bodies
  • Information on availability in terms of time

Detailed information on the required documents can be found in BaFin's "Merkblatt zu den Geschäftsleitern gemäß KWG, ZAG und KAGB".
