Investment management - Equilibrium in the operating models of Luxembourg management companies
Historical background and context
Investor protection has always been a priority for legislators, regulators and investors, since confidence is, in essence, a key driver in the investment management industry. And Luxembourg did not miss this opportunity.
Since the very first UCITS Directive, dating back to the late 80s, the UCITS regulatory framework has set the gold standard in terms of investor protection by defining types of eligible assets, investment diversification requirements, risk management, monitoring and supervision of delegates, asset protection and transparency requirements in relation to investors.
This regulatory framework also paved the way for cross-border distribution of UCITS funds throughout the European Union.
