Mission statement

This Committee will focus its actions to promote Luxembourg as:

  • The domicile of choice for all types of cross-border distributed traditional and alternative investment funds;
  • A core servicing centre (including back and middle offices) for both traditional and alternative investment funds whatever their domicile;
  • An attractive centre to locate front-office activities for both traditional and alternative investment fund managers.

As a core part of its promotional activities, this committee oversees the delivery of a programme of Luxembourg-based conferences, a series of country roadshows, a series of Luxembourg and international Leading Edge Conferences and other ad-hoc promotional events both in and outside of Luxembourg.

In order to convert this mission statement into concrete objectives and actions, this committee has established a Conference and Promotion Steering Committee, which in turn may establish a number of sub-committees and/or working groups as they see fit to assist them with their work. This includes the retention of certain existing sub-committees and working groups as listed below.​​​​
