The discussion paper builds on the feedback received in relation to ESMA’s first discussion paper on this issue which was published in December 2014. In analysing the responses to the first discussion paper, ESMA has identified diverging national practices as to the types of share class that are permitted, ranging from very simple to much more sophisticated share classes. ESMA is now seeking stakeholders’ views on common principles which could form the basis for a regulatory framework that all UCITS share classes should comply with. These common principles are as follows:
