Under Luxembourg law, the Board of an investment fund is liable towards investors for the proper discharge of the mandate it has received from them.

Corporate law unequivocally mentions negligent management as a reason for invoking the liability of Board members.

In the investment fund environment, the broad understanding of the term “management” encompasses the diversity of Luxembourg funds’ set-ups and their decentralised organisation, where all functions are traditionally outsourced to their management company/AIFM and/or directly to service providers (asset managers, fund administrators and distributors).

This set-up makes it difficult to identify the fund Board’s effective scope of activity, which clearly should not be limited to supervising delegated activities.

Allocation of tasks and understanding how the Board responsibilities may be materialised are some of the aspects which are covered by our experts.

Thanks to our long-standing exposure to governing bodies of regulated firms, we propose independent reviews of governance models and challenge, if need be, the functioning of boards and management committees.

Our range of services is :

  • Board assessment  
  • Governance Radar 
  • Governance consulting services 
  • Governance training
