The Arendt Annual Seminar and Cocktail Reception will take place in New York on Tuesday 13 September, 2016.
This popular annual Seminar is not only a great opportunity for our clients to mingle over European and Luxembourg wines, but also to get updated on key EU and Luxembourg legal developments such as the Brexit, EU Fund Marketing solutions for US Managers, the Luxembourg Corporate Act overhaul and EU tax updates. The “guest star” at this year’s reception will most certainly be the RAIF, the flexible new Luxembourg fund regime.
The Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (or “RAIF”) represents the most significant advance for the Luxembourg fund structuring toolbox available to well-informed investors. The RAIF is a non-regulated alternative investment fund (i.e. no direct regulatory supervision of the fund product) which combines the legal and tax features and flexibilities of the existing Luxembourg alternative fund regimes: it can be structured in typical Luxembourg corporate, partnership or contractual forms, may opt for a variable capital structure or an umbrella structure and has no limitations as regards eligible assets or investment policies. However, unlike most other available alternative funds, the RAIF is not subject to supervision or regulation by the Luxembourg supervisory authority, which significantly shortens time-to-market. In addition to its non-regulated character, the RAIF also benefits from the EU AIFM passport which makes it one of the most attractive alternative products across Europe.
Our experienced panelists are looking forward to addressing these key topics and discussing them with the audience.
