AIFM: Update on the application questionnaire for the setup

29 January 2018

Regulatory News Alert

On 16 January, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) published an updated version of its application form for the set-up of a fully licensed alternative investment fund manager.

The main updates of the questionnaire include the following:

  • Ownership and qualifying holdings: The repeal of CSSF Circular 09/392 has been taken into account by the CSSF and it has been replaced by CSSF Circular 17/669 adopting the joint guidelines of ESMA, EBA, and EIOPA on the prudential assessment of acquisitions and increases of qualifying holdings in the financial sector.
  • For the self-managed AIFM and for Existing Chapter 15, the amount of the applicant AIFM’s own funds must be at least equal to (a) 300,000 EUR plus 0.02% of assets under management above 250 million EUR or (b) a quarter of the previous year’s general expenses, whichever is higher.
