AIFs vehicles are becoming increasingly popular in the Luxembourg marketplace.

Although this asset class was already represented in Luxembourg with several vehicles in the form of UCI or non regulated vehicles, the recent trends have highlighted to local administrators and depositaries that alternative (ALT) investments are an asset class with totally different features and sources of risk requiring specific skills and specific operational processes.

In this context, PwC's Academy is pleased to offer this dedicated training workshop designed to provide Luxembourg professionals with a comprehensive overview of the latest industry trends, as well as a thorough analysis of sector-specific issues and best practices.

By the end of this training, the participants will be able to:

  • have a basic understanding of legal and regulatory aspects, including the different types of structures/funds available in Luxembourg and their features;
  • identify the different stakeholders in the fund's administration and management, including the AIFM's role and responsibilities;
  • understand the basics of tax structuring and mechanisms for ALT funds.
