Focus: AIFMD

Type: General

Country: Luxembourg

The CSSF have published an updated version of the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) concerning the Luxembourg Law of 12 July 2013 on alternative investment fund managers as well as the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 231/2013 of 19 December 2012 supplementing Directive 2011/61/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to exemptions, general operating conditions, depositaries, leverage transparency and supervision.

The FAQs aim at highlighting some of the key aspects of the AIFMD regulation from a Luxembourg perspective. The FAQs are therefore primarily addressed to managers of alternative investment funds (AIFMs) and alternative investment funds (AIFs) that are established in Luxembourg.

The present FAQs are to be read in conjunction with the questions and answers ESMA has published with respect to the application of the AIFMD regulation. These questions and answers, which will also be updated from time to time, are available on the following website:

In addition to the ESMA questions and answers, the European Commission has published answers to questions received in relation to the transposition of Directive 2011/61/EU on Alternative Investment Fund Managers. These questions and answers may be accessed on the dedicated webpage for Questions on Single Market Legislation of the European Commission:
