The present Royal Decree introduces a number of changes to the regulation of the law 35/2003, 4 November, collective investment institutions, approved by the Royal Decree 1309 / 2005, of 4 November, as well as three regulations of the taxation field: the regulation of the tax on the income of non-residents, approved by the Royal Decree 1776 / 2004 , July 30; Regulation of the tax, approved by the Royal Decree 1777 / 2004, of 30 July, and the regulation of the tax on physical persons income, approved by Royal Decree 439/2007 of 30 March.

The main objective of this Royal Decree is twofold. On the one hand is intended to solve some problems raised by the impact of the financial crisis on the assets of collective investment institutions. On the other hand necessary improvements that allow greater flexibility in the performance of these investment figures, without undermining investor protection.

The current financial crisis has impacted negatively on the assets which are part of the heritage of a great number of collective investment institutions, well because these assets have become illiquid, well because in the current market conditions, they are difficult to assess. For these reasons, and given the current complex situation, it is necessary to introduce an alternative to the final settlement of a collective investment institution and to the fact that the exceptional situation in which they find themselves part of its assets, in combination with the obligations imposed by the regulations in terms of subscriptions and redemptions, will result in the closure of such collective investment institution.

This alternative is the creation of collective investment institutions or special purpose compartments, known internationally as "side pockets", where the assets affected by the exceptional situation that hampers their valuation and decreases its liquidity will be staying. Thus, the institution of collective investment or original compartment you can continue managing normally, while the institution of collective investment or special purpose compartment is subject to a special scheme for rating, liquidity, subscriptions and redemptions, among other issues, allow an orderly liquidation of its assets.

On the other hand, as we have mentioned, a number of amendments are introduced in the regulation of the law 35/2003, 4 November, collective investment institutions aimed at making more flexible the operation of collective investment institutions, thus achieving greater efficiency in financial markets, to a reduction in the level of protection to the investor. Some of these measures are mainly the following: allows to operate with "Exchange-traded funds», better known as ETF, in the form of variable capital investment companies; be more flexible character real estate collective investment undertakings investment regime, including listed companies's investment in the housing market among the assets that can materialize their investments; certain limits to the investments that have to comply with objectives of profitability guaranteed investment funds are flexible and the regime of transparency of the commissions is improved.

Additionally it should be noted with some of the changes set forth in Royal Decree approaching the system of delegation of the management companies of collective investment companies of investment services, collected in the Royal Decree 217/2008, of 15 February, on the legal regime of service companies of investment and other entities that provide investment services and amending the regulation partially of Law 35/2003, 4 November, collective investment institutions, approved by the Royal Decree 1309 / 2005 of 4 November. This will prevent that the management companies for collective investment institutions that are authorised for the provision of certain services of investment, have to attend different rules when it comes to delegate functions to another entity.

Finally, changes to tax regulations are exempt from the obligation to practice retention or payment on account of income derived from transmissions or redemptions of shares representing the capital or assets of investment funds quoted or listed index variable capital investment companies.
