The Asset and Wealth Management sector stands on the precipice of fundamental shifts that will increase its importance within the global financial system towards 2020. The good news is that we can look forward to a bright future, with worldwide assets under management continuing to rise, as we predict they will exceed USD 100 trillion by 2020.
The increase in investable assets amid a wave of post-crisis regulations has created a uniquely favourable environment for asset managers to move centre stage. Because asset growth will be driven by the rising demand of the retirement market, the increasing wealth in emerging countries and the growing importance of sovereign wealth funds, Asset Managers will favour territories that can demonstrate a framework of long-term stability, transparency and a commitment to serving an international fund industry.
With a proven focus on providing experience and infrastructure to service the Asset and Wealth Management sector, Luxembourg is set to benefit from this period of transformation. More particularly, Luxembourg is well-positioned to leverage on the increase in cross-border activity, both in terms of investment and distribution, and to play a central role. The Grand Duchy also has the key attributes necessary to become the leading global AIF (Alternative Investment Fund) platform as it did with UCITS, and to thereby help alternative fund managers and institutional investors turn AIF regulations into an advantage rather than a burden.

Our multidisciplinary Luxembourg team covers all aspects of the Asset and Wealth Management industry and you can benefit from their broad experience and knowledge, together with the support of our international network.
