Establish-UCI-in-Luxembourg.pngUCI (undertakings for collective investment) in Luxembourg are regulated by the Part II of the Law of 17 December 2010. UCI structures in Luxembourg have to follow the regulations imposed by the Comission du Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF), which is the main institution which provides authorization for investment funds in this country. Investors who want to open a company in Luxembourg under the form of an UCI may set up the fund under several legal entities, on which our team of company formation representatives can provide assistance. 

Legal entities for UCIs in Luxembourg  

The procedure of company formation in Luxembourg for UCI vehicles stipulates a wide range of legal entities that may be set up for this structure, as presented below: 
common fund (FCP);
open-ended investment company (SICAV)
closed-ended investment company (SICAF).
In the situation in which the businessmen will prefer the SICAV or the SICAF structures, they will be able to register the fund under the following legal entities
public limited company;
limited partnership;
partnership limited by shares;
private limited company. 
Foreign businessmen who will choose the FCP form must know that the structure does not have a legal personality, in which case, the fund should be managed by a management company
The main advantage of setting up an UCI in Luxembourg refers to the fact that the investors can run multiple investment strategies, as the vehicle allows the registration of umbrella funds within the fund, which means that the company may carry out several investments at the same time. Our team of company formation agents in Luxembourg can provide more details on the benefits deriving from this provision. 

Registration of an UCI in Luxembourg  

The company registration in Luxembourg for UCIs states that prior to starting the investment activities, the fund must be authorized by the CSSF
In order to receive authorization from the CSSF, the investors will need to provide a set of documents, such as the constitutive documents of the fund and the information on the directors or the managers of the management company, depending on the case. 
Investors are invited to contact our team of company registration consultants in Luxembourg for legal assistance on other relevant aspects, such as the minimum capital requirements, which can vary depending on the structure chosen for incorporation
