Luxembourg Private Equity & Venture Capital Investment Fund Survey
Spotlight on a maturing industry
“ Private Equity managers appreciate Luxembourg’s business friendly environment.“
Director General of ALFI
Luxembourg is one of the most popular jurisdictions for private equity and venture capital. Whilst historically a local presence in Luxembourg was limited mostly to smaller and/or emerging General Partners, many large international houses have set up and conducted business out of Luxembourg since the middle of the last decade with a considerable and growing local substance.
The AIFMD introduced new organisational requirements and specific disclosure rules regarding AIFMs managing AIFs which acquire control of non-listed companies and issuers. Focus shifted from well-known product regulation to manager regulation. The alternative investments industry accepted the challenge and is governed today by a framework that is eligible to develop into a brand, just as the UCITS Directive.
Private Equity managers appreciate Luxembourg’s business friendly environment and they have embraced the introduction of the RAIF, which completed the Luxembourg investment fund toolbox by a manger-regulated alternative fund.
Our survey will provide you with more insight on recent developments.
