Our team of financial experts can offer assistance on the main laws which regulate the incorporation and the activities of various types of investment funds in Luxembourg
 

Laws for the alternative investment funds in Luxembourg 

 
There are several types of investment structures available in Luxembourg, which are regulated by different legislations. One of the most recent laws adopted by the local authorities refers to the Alternative Investment Fund Manager Directive (AIFMD), which was approved in July 2013. 
 
The AIFMD law is available for the alternative investment fund (AIF) managers, who are interested in expanding their business activities to the entire European financial market. The directive has the purpose of creating a unified investment market for the AIFs
 

2007 law for special investment funds in Luxembourg  

 
Special investment funds (SIFs) were introduced on the local market following the approval of the SIF law in 2007. The law has further been amended under the AIMF directive and, as such, the SIFs are now established under the following two structures: 
 
general regulations applicable to SIFs;
specific regulations applicable to SIFs incorporated as alternative investment funds
 
Our team of financial consultants can offer more details on the main differences between the two types of SIFs
