​Drawing on the success of its investment funds industry and a cluster of competencies in the structuring and acquisition of international private equity transactions built over a period of more than 20 years, Luxembourg has emerged and is positioning itself as the leading European domicile for alternative investment funds (AIFs) as well. Its appeal derives from numerous factors which have contributed to creating a business-enabling environment: contract-based company law provisions, the responsiveness of the Luxembourg legislator to practitioners’ needs, a multilingual community of professional service providers, experienced and businessoriented supervisory and tax authorities and a politically stable environment.
