In Luxembourg, the CSSF will be responsible for the supervision of the alternative investment fund industry. The preliminary step for an AIFM is to ensure the correct license has been obtained from the CSSF, thus proving its authorization to act on the Luxembourg market.

Distribution

The AIFM Directive is a managers’ directive as opposed to regulating AIFs themselves. The AIFMD seeks to harmonize the regulation of AIFMs. The passport is a means for AIFMs to demonstrate that they have attained the necessary requirements to be allowed to act as an Alternative Investment Fund Manager in the EU to market AIFs from any other EU Member States.

AIFMD reporting

AIFMD reporting entered the regulatory landscape as a means to standardize the information disclosed to regulators and provide transparency to the alternative investment industry. Hence, the reports aim to capture the complexity of various portfolios driven by different investment strategies.

Attempting to provide a full picture of the risks taken by the investment vehicles, the reports require the compilation of risk figures, operational data, and legal obligations information.
