Luxembourg Specialised Investment Funds (including certain AIFMD aspects)

Investment funds subject to the law of 13 February 2007 on specialised investment funds (as amended, the SIF Law) have proven to be a highly successful alternative investment vehicle. Combining Luxembourg’s extensive know-how in fund regulation with the ability to invest in alternative assets, specialised investment funds (SIFs) have been at the forefront of regulated alternative investment vehicles globally. Taking an approach similar to the approach later adopted by EU Directive 2011/61/EU on Alternative Investment Fund Managers (the AIFM Directive) and the law of 12 July 2013 transposing the AIFM Directive in Luxembourg (the AIFM Law), SIFs are the alternative investment vehicles which satisfy the requirements of the AIFM Directive.
