How PE Fund Managers are adapting to a changing market

The Luxembourg Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (LPEA) returns to London this October for an update on Luxembourg’s key features available to UK fund managers.

With Brexit in the agenda and significant uncertainty in the sector, the session will showcase Luxembourg as an important partner for the distribution of funds across Europe,  as it has been for many years.

This will also be the occasion to go through the characteristics and infrastructure available in Luxembourg and which make it a country with much more than meet the eye.

We invite you to register in the event below and to stay tuned on further details of the agenda.

Luxembourg is well known for its solid financial centre which success is founded on the social and political stability of the Grand Duchy and on a modern legal and regulatory framework that is continuously updated.

Over the years, specific regulatory frameworks have been created for alternative investment funds and venture capital investment funds which, combined with Luxembourg’s openness to the world, has attracted many private equity firms and specialist service providers from all over the world.

LPEA, as the trade association for Private Equity and Venture Capital Players in Luxembourg, is hosting this roadshow to present the country and the conditions which have already attracted some of the major international PE firms to set office in Luxembourg. We expect you to learn first-hand testimonials from some of our players as well as from the service providers who, together with the investors, build a strong and reliable ecosystem.
