Regulating the cross-border distribution of collective investment undertakings in the EU: the example of Luxembourg

On 2 August 2021, Directive (EU) 2019/1160 on the cross-border distribution of collective investment undertakings (the 'CBDF Directive') and the associated Regulation (EU) 2019/1156 entered into force in the EU. In Luxembourg, a law dated 21 July 2021 implements the CBDF Directive. Moreover, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier, the regulator of the Luxembourg financial sector, published Circular CSSF 21/778 and a Q&A, as well as additional information on its website. This article summarises the impact of these new rules on the distribution of funds.

The upcoming regime for marketing foreign funds to retail investors in the UK

Twin pressures – the need to recognise EU funds and the pressure to be open to international investment – have led the UK post-Brexit to the conclusion that the current regime for recognising non-UK funds for sale to UK retail investors is inadequate. The solution is the creation of a new overseas funds regime that is streamlined and yet provides for the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority to have sufficient scrutiny of fund applications. More contentious in the new regime is the political 'overlay' that gives the UK's political authorities wide discretion to decide on country and fund type regulatory equivalence.
