In the interests of convergence at EU level regarding the UCITS regime, the CSSF now says that UCITS may no longer invest in other UCIs and those that have done so are required to divest their holdings as soon as possible, unless the eligibility of each target fund has been confirmed specifically through case-by-case analysis.
