Luxembourg Private Equity Workshop in London

17/10/2018 | Meet us at the National Gallery

Luxembourg plays a leading role in the global Private Equity scene. Over the years it developed a sophisticated “tool box” that is welcomed by GPs and LPs worldwide. With a compelling and ever evolving legal and tax framework, Luxembourg is home to 19 of the 20 biggest fund managers and a hub for private equity globally.

The LPEA organises a workshop in London to discuss the implications of Brexit for UK managers, provide an update on the latest regulatory changes and bring forward the experience of GPs already present in Luxembourg.
