Place your bets in good hands

After the vote in favor of a Brexit, uncertainty drives financial institutions, banks, assets managers, FinTechs,… looking for alternative gateways to access the EU Single market.

For decades, Luxembourg and London’s financial centers have built a strong expertise in the Investment Fund Industry offering the ideal combination to access a global business. Recently, inspired by the vibrant Canary Wharf’s FinTech scene, Luxembourg encouraged the financial sector to open doors to innovation and new opportunities driven by technology. Q2 2016, Luxembourg’s financial authority was the first to grant a Bitcoin exchange license in the Eurozone.

Luxembourg offers international businesses a unique environment to establish the appropriate European hub for their global expansion. With a supportive regulatory environment and a vibrant ecosystem of service partners, the country offers the ideal passport to the European single market, already well-known by major Swiss, US, Chinese and UK financial groups.

Whatever the consequences of a Brexit will impose, Luxembourg is already the obvious launch pad for Global Asset managers, corporate banks, Insurance companies and Payments platforms.
