In the context of setting up a Luxembourg based undertaking for collective investment, applicants have to distinguish between 3 types of undertakings for collective investment:
- UCITS governed by Part I of the Law of 17 December 2010. UCITS shall mean undertaking for collective investment in transferable securities governed by Directive 2009/65/EC.
- UCI governed by Part II of the Law of 17 December 2010 relating to undertakings for collective investment. UCI shall mean undertaking for collective investment.
- SIF governed by Law of 13 February 2007 relating to specialised investment funds. SIF are limited to well-informed investors within the meaning of Article 2 of that law.
The authority which is to carry out the duties provided for in these respective laws is the CSSF.
The CSSF keeps official lists of the undertakings for collective investment authorised in Luxembourg and subject to its supervision. The official lists are regularly updated and can be viewed or downloaded here.
Such entry shall be tantamount to authorisation and shall be notified by the CSSF to the undertaking for collective investment concerned.
The entering and the maintaining of the official list shall be subject to observance of all legislative, regulatory or contractual provisions relating to the organisation and operation of the undertaking for collective investment.
The fact that an undertaking for collective investment is entered on the official list shall not, under any circumstances, be described in any way whatsoever as a positive assessment made by the CSSF of the quality of the securities offered for sale.
