Mission statement

In close cooperation with other technical committees, the committee monitors any legal, regulatory and tax developments affecting the prospects of the alternative sector in Luxembourg. It analyses upcoming legal and regulatory initiatives, launched at national or international level.

This group also contributes to ALFI responses to and comments on these initiatives. If deemed appropriate, (sub-) working groups are set up to work on specific topics.​​
