The Luxembourg Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (LPEA) will host a seminar in Chicago about Luxembourg as a hub for private equity investments. With a fast-growing private equity community estimated at EUR 400 billion and an increasing presence of US private equity fund managers, Luxembourg is the go-to jurisdiction to set up and operate your US investments in the EU market.
