Open-RAIF-in-Luxembourg.jpgOne of the ways in which investors can open a company in Luxembourg is by setting up a RAIF (reserved alternative investment fund). The registration of a RAIF does not follow the applicable legislation for commercial companies. The business form can be set up following the regulations of the Luxembourg Law of 23 July 2016, which stipulates several types of legal entities that can be set up under the RAIF. Our team of company formation agents in Luxembourg can provide in-depth information on this new type of vehicle available for foreign investors. 

Advantages of RAIF in Luxembourg 

The RAIF represents the newest type of vehicle which can be set up by foreign investors in Luxembourg. The main advantage of this structure is given by the fact that it embodies the regulations of the alternative investment funds (AIFs), with the ones of the SICAR (investment companies in risk capital). 
Investors interested in the procedure of company formation in Luxembourg as a RAIF structure will not be required to obtain an approval for the fund’s activities from the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF), a requirement that must usually be completed for other types of investment funds
The RAIF structure provides a flexible investment framework, available for well-informed investors who can invest a minimum sum of EUR 125,000 in the respective structure. There are other characteristics referring to the eligibility criteria, which can be further explained by our team of company registration consultants in Luxembourg

Legal entities for RAIF in Luxembourg  

Another advantage for setting up a RAIF in Luxembourg refers to the legal entities that can be chosen for incorporation
A RAIF can be set up under one of the following: 
common fund;
investment company with variable capital (SICAV);
investment company with fixed capital (SICAF).
Investors who will start the procedure of company registration in Luxembourg as a SICAV or SICAF will also be able to establish one of the next legal entities: 
public limited company;
private limited company;
partnership limited by shares;
limited partnership;
cooperative company.
