Investment Funds

As a leading global centre for investment funds, Luxembourg provides a comprehensive toolbox from where sponsors may base their investment funds, with a wide range of facilities suited to their particular needs in terms of structuring and the regulatory, corporate or tax regime.
For fund service providers, Luxembourg will be your place of choice to set up your management company, alternative investment fund manager, depositary bank or central administration.
Identifying the appropriate structure among the multiple choices, understanding its benefits and constraints from the outset and having a clear understanding of what the Luxembourg regulator requires will be key factors for a successful project.

What are your challenges

  • A deep understanding of the Luxembourg and European toolboxes.
  • A comprehensive view of market trends and challenges.
  • Legal expertise in drafting and negotiating funds related documents and procedures.
  • A thorough  knowledge of the regulator's practice.
  • A committed, pragmatic and responsive team.
