We have extensive experience in advising sponsors who want to provide management company services and alternative investment fund manager (AIFM) services to their own or third-party Luxembourg or non-Luxembourg funds.

We can support you through initial discussions around your venture and give guidance on the best way to set up and organise a regulated company, vehicle or structure in Luxembourg.

Our services for management companies and AIFMs include:

  • Identifying the key initial elements to be taken into account when defining the project
  • Drafting legal documentation
  • Advising on operational needs, human resourcing, IT requirements and employment issues
  • Submitting applications to the regulator, supporting discussions and securing authorisation

Once a company is established, we can provide ongoing guidance on running the business and responding to legal and regulatory developments. If you wish to grow your operations, we can advise on cross-border expansion, whether you are seeking to establish branches abroad or use EU freedoms to provide services in other member states.

Through our participation on committees with the Luxembourg supervisory authority, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF), and the Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI), we work to ensure that Luxembourg continues to offer a highly attractive environment for international groups seeking to set up management companies or AIFMs.
