Luxembourg, Europe
Luxembourg is the second-largest investment fund centre in the world, after the United States. It is the premier captive reinsurance market in the European Union and the premier private banking centre in the Eurozone. A founding member of the EU that benefits fully from the principles of free movement of capital and freedom of establishment with the EU, Luxembourg has a track record of stability. Even in the face of challenges that arose from the global financial crisis, Luxembourg maintains low levels of sovereign debt, has one of the highest GDPs per capita and retains a AAA rating. This has resulted in the domiciling of tens of thousands of investment holding, financing and securitization vehicles, many of which form part of globally recognised corporate groups or hold the portfolio investments of leading international investment funds.

From its origins as a Euroloan centre, the city subsequently developed as a private banking centre and then, from the 1980s, as a leading domicile for investment funds. The success of this financial centre is founded on the social and political stability of the Grand Duchy and on a modern legal and regulatory framework that is continuously updated, inspired by regular consultation between the government, the legislator and the private sector. Thus, over the years, specific regulatory frameworks have been created for alternative investment funds, venture capital investment funds, international pension funds, specialised investment funds, captive reinsurance companies, covered bond issuing banks, securitization vehicles and family wealth management companies. This legal framework, combined with Luxembourg’s openness to the world, has attracted banks, insurance companies, investment fund promoters and specialist service providers from all over the globe.

The Luxembourg financial centre is characterized by a strong culture of investor protection and rigorous anti money-laundering policies. Its specialist teams are multilingual and multicultural, with a long tradition of financial expertise and extensive knowledge of the needs of an international clientele.
Our firm strives for a modern corporate governance strategy that takes into account the interests of each shareholder. The shareholders are actively involved in any matters that are critical to the company’s continuity and success beyond the appointment of the Board and the annual accounts. We have assigned a Trust Office through which shareholders can announce a proxy and/or issue voting instructions. Each share in the capital of our firm gives the entitlement to cast one vote. These voting rights can be exercised by the holder of the share. Shareholders who attend a shareholders’ meeting in person are entitled to cast votes at their own discretion on a number of shares equal to the number of shares that the shareholder holds on the relevant record date. Shareholders may also exercise their voting rights even if they do not attend a shareholders’ meeting by granting a proxy to a third party. When shareholders do not attend, have not granted a voting proxy, nor issued voting instructions, voting is guided primarily by the interests of the shareholders taking into account their interests. The sale and transfer of shares is restricted to ensure the stability, consistency and continuity of the undertaking.
