In the area of asset management, knowledge of the regulatory framework is essential. KPMG Law is your reliable partner for regulatory questions.

We advise the managers of investment funds, alternative investment funds and real estate investment funds in regulatory matters. Our services range from the examination of licensing or notification requirements to the organisational requirements for asset managers, ongoing regulatory compliance advice and assistance in proceedings before the Financial Market Authority. Our team can also look back on experience in advising on the cross-border distribution of investment funds. In the field of fund law, our partner Dieter Buchberger is one of the editors of the leading legal commentary on the Investment Fund Act (InvFG) and is the author of several articles on this subject in professional journals.

Climate change does not only take on a significant financial risk, due to its capital allocation function, the financial market also plays an important role in the development of sustainable solutions and the reduction of pollutant emissions. Thus, we advise clients on questions relating to the requirements for the development and distribution of sustainable financial products and the increasing number of EU legal requirements in the area of sustainable financing.

We advise credit institutions and investment firms on the regulatory requirements in connection with MiFID II and its implementation by the Austrian Securities Supervision Act 2018. Our advice covers licensing and organisational and transparency requirements in the area of investment services.
