Presentation of the Luxembourg regulatory framework applicable to Support PSF and specialised PSF

With 279 entities and almost 16,000 employees, the Luxembourg PFSs play a key role in the Luxembourg Financial Sector. These Luxembourg statuses have grown rapidly over the last decade and have supported the growth of the Luxembourg financial sector.
