On 8 April 2019, Luxembourg adopted two laws (« Brexit Laws ») on measures to be taken in relation to the financial sector in the event of a hard Brexit, i.e., a withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union in the absence of any negotiated agreement.
The Brexit Laws, which will take effect on the day of occurrence of a hard Brexit, apply to UK regulated fund managers authorised under Directive 2009/65/EC and/or Directive 2011/61/EU and other UK financial and investment institutions as well as UK UCITS marketed in Luxembourg under the UCITS Directive (the « Impacted Entity(ies) »).
They introduce transitional measures for the Impacted Entities which would no longer be entitled to benefit from passporting rights under the relevant EU Directives as a result of a hard Brexit.
The CSSF will assess each notification on a case-by-case basis.
Application for authorisation before 31 October 2019
If the Impacted Entities are UCIs or fund managers that wish to continue their activities after the transitional period, they shall, in addition to the aforementioned notification, submit to the CSSF as soon as possible and no later than 31 October 2019, the corresponding application for authorisation.
The Brexit Laws create legal certainty for investors, UCIs and fund managers. They allow a 12 month transitional period which should be sufficient for all concerned parties to implement the relevant adjustments and take the steps required to continue their activities going forward.
