Questionnaire LBC/FT pour les fonds d’investissement FIS/OPC partie II/SICAR/ELTIF (uniquement en anglais)

The CSSF has put in place an on-line template collecting standardised key information concerning money laundering and terrorist financing risks (“ML/FT risk”) to which the professionals under its supervision are exposed and the implementation of related risk mitigation and targeted financial sanctions measures.

This template must be completed when sending a licencing application for setting up a SIF, UCI Part II, SICAR or ELTIF. It is complementary to the current “Application questionnaire” already available on the CSSF website.

The questionnaire should be completed by the person responsible for the control of the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing (“AML/CFT Compliance Officer”) for the fund, as designated in accordance with Article 40 (1) of CSSF Regulation 12-02 of 14 December 2012 on the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing.  The CSSF must receive this questionnaire by email before it acknowledges receipt of the licensing application file.

The AML/CFT Investment Fund Questionnaire is available on the CSSF website under the relevant Forms, depending on the type of fund intended to be launched.

This AML/CFT Investment Fund Questionnaire contributes to the CSSF’s ongoing assessment of ML/FT risks present in the investment fund industry and forms part of the AML/CFT risk-based supervision approach put in place by the CSSF over recent years.
