Authorisation of an AIFM



    Articles 5 to 19 of the Law of 12 July 2013 on alternative investment fund managers (“AIFM Law”) lay down the legal conditions which must be met to be granted authorisation as alternative investment fund manager (AIFM).

    Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 231/2013 of 19 December 2012 specifies the manner how certain articles of the AIFM Law shall be applied.

    Any company intending to act as AIFM shall be authorised by the CSSF beforehand. The application file for authorisation shall include, as a minimum requirement, the information listed in the “Application questionnaire for the set up of a fully licensed alternative investment fund manager”, which can be downloaded under “Forms” together with the Market Entry Form that will have to be filled in and submitted through our eDesk Portal.
