As recently announced on our website, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF) has issued on 10th January an updated version of the frequently asked questions relating to the Luxembourg Law of 12th July 2013 on alternative investment fund managers (the AIFM Law).
Among some other points, the CSSF has stated - despite the legal framework relating to transitional provisions applicable to Luxembourg AIFMs as well as to AIFs under the AIFM Law performing activities under this law prior to 22 July 2013 and having in principle time to regulate the authorisation process until 22 July 2014 - that it invites:
- any concerned AIFMs to submit the relevant authorisation file; and
- any concerned AIFs to submit the relevant information file;
as soon as possible and at the latest by 1 April 2014 already.
Our firm, respectively our dedicated Investment Fund Practice Group, would be pleased to assist you with the relevant CSSF submissions.
For more detailed information, please feel free to consult the updated version of the FAQ issued by the CSSF.
