Fund setup on platforms

Establishing a fund and launching it on a fund platform.

Creatrust advises alternative investment fund managers and fund promoters on how to structure their investment portfolios, set up funds and register them on a fund platform. We offer a one-stop-shop solution that turns an initial investment idea into a successful fund.

Joining a fund platform

To join a platform a manager must first decide on the fund structure. Creatrust will advise on the process to set up the structure in accordance with the project features in order to accommodate investors’ needs and different legal and regulatory requirements.
Prior to the setup of the fund, promoters will be able to select which platform(s) they wish their fund to be registered on. This facilitates the process of subscription for investors.

Popular fund structures

Luxembourg alternative investment funds can be set up as regulated or unregulated vehicles. For regulated vehicles we distinguish between funds targeting the wider public and those aimed at a restricted group of qualified, professional or well-informed investors under private placement. Regulatory oversight is performed by the CSSF, the financial regulation authority in Luxembourg.
