Private Equity is the rising star among alternative assets. We expect it to represent half ($ 6.5tn)* of this growing market, likely to reach $13.6tn until 2020. Over the next years, private equity fund managers will go through a period of transformation to adjust to a new operating and economic environment.
Luxembourg has been a major hub in this industry for over 20 years and continues to attract an increasing number of PE houses. Located in the heart of Europe this small country consists of a unique international and highly skilled workforce, which may increase the popularity even further. Today, nine out of the top ten Private Equity fundraisers worldwide have structures domiciled in Luxembourg.
Its large variety of investment vehicles offers solutions for a multitude of diverse requirements. "The menu carte is manifold but there is a dish for every taste", said Vincent Lebrun, Tax Partner and Private Equity Leader at PwC Luxembourg.
