Private Equity & Venture Capital
_In recent years, Luxembourg has become one of the most favoured jurisdictions for the structuring of private equity investments. In addition to Luxembourg’s attractive tax regime and legal flexibility, this privileged status was greatly enhanced by the creation of the SICAR vehicle in 2004 and the Specialised Investment Fund (SIF) in 2007.
Luxembourg displays a comprehensive range of perfectly adapted legal instruments and vehicles which offer made-to-measure structures, from the non-regulated SOPARFI regime to the more sophisticated supervised SIF or SICAR vehicles. This comprehensive legal framework noticeably takes advantage of a local business-friendly environment, eager to satisfy the specific requirements of demanding investors.
