ALFI offers guidance for due diligence information packs

- Publications

It is a regulatory requirement that the board of a Fund, the Management Company or the Alternative Investment Fund Manager (AIFM) remain responsible for the activities delegated to third parties and the need to oversee their activities and performance. With a view to simplify and facilitate initial and ongoing due diligence reviews, an ALFI working group under the aegis of the ALFI Fund Governance Forum was created to consider whether the different approaches taken to due diligence on delegates by the boards of Luxembourg funds, management companies, and AIFMs could be more consistent.

On 27 March 2015, the Luxembourg draft law on FATCA was submitted to Parliament. The law will ratify the execution of the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) signed between Luxembourg and the United States of America on 28 March 2014 as well as the related Appendices and Memorandum of Understanding. It is expected that the law will be passed in the coming days. In this context, ALFI's implementation working groups for FATCA prepared a Q&A document to deal specifically with reporting and withholding issues in the context of FATCA.
