When deciding on a business with activities in the financial sector, one must obtain a particular license, in order to legally place the company on the market. The “Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier” or the CSSF represents the institute that controls the activities of the financial bodies registered in Luxembourg. CSSF is in charge of issuing the PFS license (Professionals of the Financial Sector) which is necessary for any kind of financial activity in Luxembourg. When applying for the above-mentioned license for the future financial company in Luxembourg one must provide to the authorities a solid plan that includes activities for 3 years, details about the services offered, and information about the owners of the business. Additionally, one must understand the term “know your customers” and offer the related services as part of the financial institution he or she intends to establish on the market.
