Luxembourg is strongly positioned to benefit from a combination of favourable factors affecting this important market sector:
Fund managers and investors have sought regulated as opposed to unregulated offshore vehicles, and have taken advantage of the opportunities offered by UCITS funds in this context.
Changes to the Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM) Directive are helping to establish Luxembourg as a major alternative funds centre.
The appetite for absolute return solutions is growing again.
For all these reasons, House of Training and ALFI have decided to offer unique training opportunities in Luxembourg aimed at those directly involved in the day-to-day business.
The training programme consists of three training modules in English.
The first module provides a theoretical foundation and a common language for understanding hedge funds. The other two modules then provide a valuable market-accepted view on specific applied, operational, accounting and IFRS aspects applicable to both hedge funds and funds of hedge funds.
Importantly, all courses provide a practical explanation for those involved in hedge fund administration and focus on the issues most relevant to Luxembourg in this context.
Registration for each course must be done separately by clicking on the links above. They will take you to the training page where you will find the relevant information and the button to register for the training and exam.
