AIFM authorisation

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


Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 231/2013 of 19 December 2012 specifies the manner how certain articles of the 2013 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".
