Listing an Investment fund/ETF on the BdL Market

Listing on the Bourse de Luxembourg (BdL) market will require submission of a prospectus to Luxembourg Financial Supervisory Authority, the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier (CSSF). Once the prospectus has been reviewed and approved, the fund will be listed and admitted to trading.

  • It is not mandatory to appoint a listing agent to list at LuxSE; you can submit applications directly with us. However, you may choose to appoint a listing agent to submit requests on your behalf.

    Our listing members can act as a listing agent for you.
