Sustainable finance and ESG funds

Our investment fund team supports promoters wishing to establish a Luxembourg ESG fund in finding the appropriate investment vehicle to meet their requirements and goals from a marketing, regulatory and legal perspective.

We advise on the full spectrum of Luxembourg investment vehicles and fund regimes including specialised investment funds (SIF), reserved alternative investment funds (RAIF), alternative investments funds with an authorised AIFM, and unregulated common limited partnerships (SCS) and special limited partnerships (SCSp). We can also evaluate the structuring of the investment vehicle as a European Long-Term Investment Fund (ELTIF), European Venture Capital Fund (EuVECA), or European Social Entrepreneurship Fund (EuSEF).

Our team also:

  • Assists fund managers on preparation of SFDR-related disclosures either as neutral (Article 6 of the SFDR), possessing sustainability characteristics (Article 8), or having a sustainability purpose (Article 9).
  • Assists clients with establishment of impact advisory committees and impact policies.
  • Assists clients with drafting fund documentation, review of service provider agreements, regulatory filing with the CSSF, if necessary, and incorporation of the general partner and the fund.
  • Introduces clients to service providers that meet their requirements, including custodian banks, AIFMs, fund administrators, registrars and transfer agents, and auditors.
  • Provides corporate support services throughout the fund’s life cycle, including amendment of fund documents, restructuring, and launch or closure of sub-funds.
  • Advises on AIFMD-related issues.
