  • Luxembourg Stock Exchange unveils Securities Official List for non-traded securities

    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.
  • New double tax treaty between France and Luxembourg: substantial impact on real estate investors

    On 20 March 2018, the governments of France and Luxembourg signed a new double tax treaty (“New Treaty ”) replacing the current treaty dated 1 April 1958 (“Old Treaty ”).

  • 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).
  • Clarification of the scope of the UCITS and AIFMD depositary regimes

    A significant number of so-called Part II UCIs may remain within the scope of the AIFMD depositary regime. Luxembourg’s Parliament ( Chambre des Députés ) has voted yesterday to amend the respective legislation to this effect. This amendment clarifies the scope of the UCITS-like and the AIFMD depositary regimes in Luxembourg for these funds.
  • New anti-money laundering rules in Luxembourg

    On 14 February 2018, the law of 13 February 2018 implementing a substantial part of the 4th anti-money laundering directive (4th AML Directive) was published in the Official Journal of Luxembourg. The law will enter into force on 18 February 2018.
  • Outsourcing made easier: professional secrecy in the financial and insurance sector softened

    Through the law of 27 February 2018 implementing the EU regulation (UE) 2015/751 on interchange commissions for card based payments, which amends various laws relating to the financial sector (and was published in the Luxembourg official gazette on March 1st 2018), the Luxembourg parliament has now relaxed the rules on professional secrecy for banks, investment firms, other regulated professionals of the financial sector, payment institutions, electronic money institutions and insurance undertakings (together the « financial institutions ») to facilitate outsourcing arrangements.
  • Permanent exemption from variation margin obligation for FX forwards?

    Earlier this week, the European Supervisory Authorities (ESAs) published draft amendments to EMIR-related regulatory technical standards (RTS) that align the treatment of variation margin (VM) for FX forwards with the supervisory guidance applicable in other key jurisdictions. More specifically the draft amendments propose that the requirement to exchange VM for physically settled FX forwards shall only target transactions between institutions (credit institutions and investment firms).
