DIVE INTO PRIVATE EQUITY AND VENTURE CAPITAL

Private Equity is one of the best performing asset classes.

Over the past decades, the industry has consistently grown to exceed €4 trillion in assets under management. Those distributions, combined with the poor performance and volatility linked to traditional asset classes, have driven a number of new investors to enter the Private Equity world.

Luxembourg is one of the most popular jurisdictions for private equity and venture capital. Whilst historically a local presence in Luxembourg was limited mostly to smaller and/or emerging General Partners, many large international houses have set up and conducted business out of Luxembourg since the middle of the last decade with a considerable and growing local substance.

The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) introduced new organizational requirements and specific disclosure rules regarding AIFMs managing AIFs which acquire control of non-listed companies and issuers. Focus shifted from well-known product regulation to manager regulation.

The alternative investments industry accepted the challenge and is governed today by a framework that is eligible to develop into a brand, just as the UCITS Directive.

PE managers appreciate Luxembourg's business friendly environment and they have embraced the introduction of the Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF), which completed the Luxembourg investment fund toolbox by a manager-regulated alternative fund.

In a fast changing environment, the industry is however facing challenges of an economic and regulatory nature. While Luxembourg has been active in the Private Equity field for more than two decades, until recently very few large investment vehicles were established there. In this new paradigm, the appetite for the Luxembourg fund structuring toolbox has increased beyond expectations. The diverse range of vehicles, from unregulated to regulated products, together with the asset class expertise developed over the years within the professional community and the CSSF are key factors of this collective success.

This shift is driving a strong demand for skilled employees who understand how the industry operates in its entire value chain—from fund structuring through to operations and exits.

The Private Equity & Other Alternative Asset Classes course and the Private Equity Business Certificate Program aim to meet the growing demands of the industry by delivering both engaging and challenging courses, providing participants with tailored curriculum and professional insights to develop new skills and knowledge directly applicable to the day-to-day business operations.
