ALFI roadshows are free seminars in major financial centres around the world that target professionals across the entire asset management and investment fund value chain. They combine two key goals: updating local investment fund communities on the latest developments in the European and Luxembourg fund markets, and providing a forum to network and explore opportunities for increased cooperation, helping to attract new business and to provide Luxembourg funds with better access to markets abroad.
