Denise Voss, Chair of ALFI, explained: “These reports highlight a significant growth in the number of alternative funds in Luxembourg, demonstrating how attractive Luxembourg is for this type of fund. They also all show the appeal of the Reserved Alternative Investment Funds structure, which was introduced by Luxembourg in 2016, with the aim of reducing time-to-market. Indeed the Private Equity survey showed that 4 out of 5 PE fund managers believe the RAIF, as well as the Limited Partnership structure, have been game changers for Luxembourg.”
