As of 1 January 2024, Barclays Bank Ireland (BE) is subject to the Central Bank (Supervision and Enforcement) Act 2013 (Section 48(1)) (Investment Firms) Regulations 2023 (the “Client Asset Regulations” or “CAR”).

  • The key features of the CAR applying to the safeguarding of client assets, 
  • What constitutes client assets under the regime,
  • The circumstances in which CAR applies and does not apply, 
  • The circumstances in which BE will hold client assets, deposit client assets with a third party and deposit client assets with a third party outside the State,
  • The arrangements that apply to holding client assets and the risks associated with these arrangements. 

BE will inform you in the case of any material changes to how we safeguard your assets or this document.

The Payment Services Directive (PSD2)

The revised Payment Services Directive, better known as PSD2, is a European regulation aimed at bringing increased competition, transparency and security in payment services.

The European Commission leaflet ‘Your rights when making payments in Europe’ [PDF, 334KB] provides helpful information on PSD2.

Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation

As of 10 March 2021, Barclays Bank Ireland (BBI) is subject to the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).

This is part of a broader package of legislative tools designed to redirect capital towards sustainable businesses and harmonise disclosures to end investors in relation to:

  • Integration of “sustainability risks” (which BBI refers to as Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Risks)
  • Consideration of adverse sustainability impacts
  • Products that have sustainable investment objectives
  • Products that promote environmental or social characteristics.

For further information on how this has been addressed by BBI, see our SFDR page.
