Printer-friendly versionPDF version






UCITS IV is a European Union initiative under the Lamfalussy Process. The European Parliament and the Council of the EU adopted the new European UCITS IV directive known as UCITS (DIR 2009/65/EC), on June 22, 2009. EU member States must transpose the directive into national legislation by July 1, 2011.

In fact, Luxembourg became the first EU jurisdiction to adopt UCITS IV at the end of December 2010, and as a major domicile for both conventional and Islamic investment funds has a first mover advantage.

The UCITS IV directive seeks to update and harmonies the regulatory framework applicable to European investment funds and to improve their distribution within the European Union. The European investment fund market is estimated at 5 trillion euros. Perhaps more importantly it deals with the management company passport; cross-border mergers; asset grouping by means of joint structures (master-feeders); simplified authorization procedures, replacement of the simplified prospectus with key investor information (KII) and/or Key Investor Disclosure (KID) structures; and measures concerning implementation.
