As of 22 July 2014, the transition period for alternative investment fund managers (‘AIFMs’) marketing their alternative investment funds (‘AIFs’) in the European Union has ended and AIFMs must now comply with the marketing and distribution rules under AIFMD.

The ability to raise capital is a necessary prerequisite for the success of an AIF. Luxembourg’s position as a major fund and financial centre means that it is important to be aware of the local specificities in relation to marketing and distribution not just in Luxembourg but also in other EU countries.

The objective of this training is to explain the AIFMD marketing passport and its application in practice as well as indicate the situations where distribution can continue to take place using private placement rules with reference to Luxembourg and other EU jurisdictions. Furthermore, considering the delay in the marketing passport extension recently announced, the training will also focus on alternative solutions for non EU AIFM to markets their products into European markets.​

  • Distribution without a passport (National Private Placement Regimes)
