    The Luxembourg Stock Exchange has launched the Securities Official List, a dedicated section of the exchange’s official list that enables securities to be listed without requiring them to be admitted to trading on either its regulated Bourse de Luxembourg or Euro MTF market. The SOL, which involves a simplified and rapid registration process, is specifically designed for issuers seeking only the visibility of having their securities on a recognised official list and for which admission to trading is not essential, but that can benefit from the enhanced distribution and diversification of their investor base the new listing section offers.

  • Cross-border distribution of investment funds: a proposal for harmonisation

    Reducing barriers for cross-border distribution of investment funds within the EU, thus reducing the costs of going cross-border, while deepening the single marketing procedure for investment funds is the proclaimed purpose of the two legislative proposals published by the EU Commission today, on 12 March 2018. According to the EU Commission proposal, the envisaged harmonisation of rules for cross-border distribution should occur through a new directive amending both the UCITS and AIFM Directives with regard to the cross-border distribution of collective investment funds, and through a new regulation on facilitating cross-border distribution of collective investment funds and amending the EuVECA Regulation (Regulation on European venture capital funds) and the EuSEF Regulation (Regulation on European social entrepreneurship funds).

This amendment clarifies the scope of the UCITS-like and the AIFMD depositary regimes in Luxembourg for these funds.

  • Outsourcing made easier: professional secrecy in the financial and insurance sector softened
