Many asset managers who come to Luxembourg have successfully established products in their country or region of origin and would like to replicate existing strategies in other markets.
They use Luxembourg as the gateway to global distribution.
Over the last 30 years, Luxembourg-based fund managers and service providers have accumulated a deep knowledge of the entire asset management industry value chain, including alternatives and socially responsible investment. As a result, fund management firms can tap into a unique reservoir of skills and expertise to support the development of their international fund business. This knowledge has been the key enabler of the impressive development of our fund centre over the past thirty years.
Today, fund managers, custodians, lawyers, auditors and other service providers, all active members of ALFI, aim at adding ever more value to the global asset management industry. They increasingly service not only funds domiciled in Luxembourg, but also funds based abroad, thereby contributing to the evolution of Luxembourg from a fund domicile to a fully-fledged fund servicing centre.
This evolution has been underpinned by state-of-the-art market infrastructure in which Luxembourg is constantly investing to meet the requirements of the most sophisticated global fund managers.
