Communication sur la publication de deux formulaires de notification à compléter lors de la demande d’agrément d’un GFI auprès de la CSSF, respectivement lors de la demande d’extension des activités d’un GFI existant ou la modification de la structure de l’actionnariat (uniquement en anglais)

Communication on the publication of two notification templates to be completed when applying for the authorisation of an IFM to the CSSF, respectively when extending the activities of an existing IFM or modifying its shareholding structure.

The CSSF published two notification templates entitled “Authorised investment fund managers (“IFMs”) – type(s) of requested authorisation(s)” and ”Authorised investment fund managers (“IFMs”) – type(s) of requested change(s)” to be used with immediate effect when:

  • a new application for IFM authorisation subject to the Law of 17 December 2010 relating to undertakings for collective investment, to the Law of 12 July 2013 on alternative investment fund managers and to the EuVECA or EuSEF Regulation is submitted to the CSSF;
  • an existing IFM intends to extend its activities by requesting to be approved for additional investment strategies or MiFID services, respectively to act as central administration and/or registrar, and transfer agent.

Furthermore, the template “Authorised investment fund managers (“IFMs”) – type(s) of requested change(s)” should also be used in the context of an acquisition of a qualifying holding in an IFM, a change of a reference shareholder and/or the creation of one or more branches.

The applicable notification template should always be filled out and submitted to the CSSF along with the related application file. The templates can be found in the documentation/forms section of the relevant pages:
