Open-a-SIF-in-Luxembourg.jpgA specialized investment fund (SIF) in Luxembourg is a type of investment vehicle addressed to institutional and qualified investors who are able to carry out flexible investment policies. Foreign businessmen who want to open a company in Luxembourg should know that the SIF is regulated by a legislation which allows a less strict regime compared to other types of investment vehicles.
