UCITS IV The trend for the future



the dangers of a two-speed Europe



There are three months to go until UCITS IV comes into force. It is an important issue for the EU funds market. Luxembourg was the first European Member State to transpose this directive into national law. In an interview with LFF (http://www.lff.lu), Jean-Michel Loehr, RBC Dexia’s Head of Industry and Government Relations, speaks about implementation of the Directive in Europe’s main fund centres and the different attitudes of asset managers. He fears that a two-speed Europe is emerging.

Luxembourg has become the first EU Member State to adopt UCITS IV into its national law. What is the advantage of early implementation?

Luxemburg has developed into the domicile and servicing hub of choice for UCITS, as well as an ideal gateway for cross border distribution in the EU and beyond.

Being the first country to adopt UCITS 4, Luxembourg has created legal certainty for asset managers to analyse and prepare for general implementation on July 1st 2011. The country is leading the pack, which is a visible sign of Luxemburg’s long term commitment to the fund and asset management industry.
