We are based in Luxembourg. This is no accident: this financial centre specialises in fund launches. That is why we have created an infrastructure here, enabling our specialists to start your fund concept off on the right track. Whether you are an asset manager or an asset owner, our solution is tailored to your needs and includes customised modules to ensure your sustainable success.

Fund concepts made in Luxembourg

As an independent asset management company, we provide reliable and comprehensive support for the launch of a wide variety of fund concepts in the Luxembourg financial centre. Our client base includes both asset managers and asset owners, who require a customised fund vehicle to implement their individual product ideas. It goes without saying that we have the state-of-the-art technical infrastructure necessary to ensure compliance with all applicable regulations and supervisory requirements. In recent years this has become one of the main components of active investment management, particularly with regard to the European Directives UCITS IV and the AIFMD. Customised solutions to meet your requirements. So you can concentrate on what matters most: your fund’s management and returns.

Our fund services – the basis for your success

Our experienced specialists will provide reliable support in implementing your fund concept, from structuring and administration, through to risk management and beyond. Our services are tailored to your requirements. Whether you require a full-service solution or individual modules, our team’s vast experience means we can always respond to your specific needs. Together, we can develop the best design for your fund. Legal form, fund launch, administration, domiciling, compliance, marketing, distribution and much more – our modules for your success.

Our Competence. For Your Performance.

It begins with an idea. Our experts help you to structure your unique concept. As market leader in the distribution of global fund placements, our Luxembourg office is the optimal starting point for new fund concepts. With a strong focus on UCITS structures, our service modules are equally suited to asset managers and asset owners. After reviewing your plans together, we will recommend the appropriate vehicle and help you realise the concept. We can also provide support with setting up legal agreements and informative discussions with the Luxembourg supervisory authority. Furthermore, we are equipped to assume full responsibility for documenting each step and creating your fact sheets and key investor information documents (KIIDs). Upon request, we can also reliably handle the migration of existing funds, and are authorised to make the modifications necessary to amend investment policies. Once your fund structure has achieved its purpose, we can even help you with its dissolution. We are a part of your project – from cradle to grave.

Once the groundwork for launch has been laid, we act as your management company, providing day-to-day fund administration. This means we don’t just build infrastructure, but can also be entrusted with the domiciliation formalities of Luxembourg funds. Our administration services create the framework to ensure that governance and compliance issues are properly observed, and that trades with partners (and the associated invoicing) run smoothly.

To accompany our fund services, our experts can also offer risk management services based on state-of-the-art procedures and tools. Not only do we provide the database needed for analysis, we also assume full control and monitoring of the risk structure. By watching your investment limits, we can react immediately to any potential pre-trade compliance infringements.

Our risk control services include:

  • Risk classification and selection of the best risk measurement processes
  • Value at risk model (qualitative approach)
  • Model validation (backtesting)
  • Stress tests (historic, hypothetical, multi factor)
  • Risk reporting
  • Sensitivity analyses
  • Liquidity risk and liquidity risk stress tests
  • Statutory reporting and information system setup
  • Daily market risk reports for the full portfolio and individual portfolios

If needed, you can also entrust our experienced specialists with the daily monitoring of fund valuations.

In this case, we will ensure the proper accounting and monitoring of operations such as:

  • Purchases/sales of fund assets
  • Receivables
  • Liabilities
  • Income allocation
  • Corporate actions
  • Invoices charged to fund assets
  • Validity of price sources used for valuations

Beyond the structuring, administration and risk management of your fund, we offer additional services to make your life easier on a daily basis. For example, our independent (buy side) trading desk can run your bond and equities trading if needed. We are also experienced in implementation management – our experts can bring specific banks or consultants into the picture with ease. Commission management is also safe in the hands of our professionals. And you can always rely on the expertise of our marketing and distribution specialists. We would be delighted to discuss these additional fund services, with a view to finding the perfect arrangement to match your requirements.
