The CSSF Circular 18/698, entered into force on 23 August 2018, mirrors a lot of best practices already existing in the market but also introduces new requirements on the “authorization and organization of Luxembourgish investment management companies; specific provisions on the fight against money laundering and terrorism financing applicable to investment fund managers and entities carrying out the function of registrar agent.”
Our training proposes to cover each chapter of the circular in order to capture the main impacts of the requirements and support our participants in identifying the impacts of this circular on their organisation.
