Service Description

Does your capital management company want to appoint a new managing director? You must report this to the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin).

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.

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

The duty of disclosure also applies

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

Managing directors must fulfill the following criteria

  • professional suitability,
  • reliability and
  • sufficient time availability

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


Process flow

Submit the notification of intention to appoint a managing director by post:

  • Go to the BaFin website and download the following forms:
    • Form "Suitability matrix"
    • "Notification of changes to the members of the management body" form
    • Form "Information on reliability and availability pursuant to Article 4 DELEGATED REGULATION (EU) 2017/1943"
    • Form "Personnel changes to the managing director in accordance with KAGB"
    • Form "Information on reliability according to KAGB"
    • Form "Secondary activities of directors, supervisory board members and advisory board members in accordance with KAGB"
  • Fill out the forms completely and truthfully. You can do this directly on the computer and print it out.
  • Enter the name of the company and the reference number so that the notification and the required documents can be clearly assigned.
  • In your notification, state the date on which you wish to appoint the managing directors.
  • Compile all the necessary documents. BaFin provides a "checklist" on its website which you can use to check whether your documents are complete.
  • Send the required documents to BaFin.
  • BaFin may request further documents and information if it appears necessary in individual cases.
  • After BaFin has checked your documents, you will receive a decision.
