Why Luxembourg?

why luxembourg

If hedge funds are your business, you've come to the right place.

Luxembourg is the fastest growing alternative investment funds domicile in the world. With over 14,000 funds and around USD 3,700 bn of assets under management in 2015, the Grand Duchy is the second largest investment fund centre in the world after the United States.

Over the years, Luxembourg has been a hot spot on the hedge funds global map, attracting managers from all over the world.  As of June 2015, 15.6% of global alternative investment funds and 45% of alternative UCITS were domiciled in Luxembourg.

What brings them all here?

A sophisticated and responsive regulatory framework that puts investor protection first.

Willingness and ability to innovate - In 2013 Luxembourg introduced the special limited partnership structure which is similar to the Anglo-Saxon LP model, an initiative greeted by the market evidenced by the fact that more than 1,000 have been registered since the legislation was passed.  Luxembourg updated their offering again in 2016 with the introduction of the Reserved Alternative Investment Fund which is an AIFMD-compliant unregulated investment vehicle, very flexible and quick to market.

The idea of being at the heart of the European Union, benefitting from all the perks that come with it.
