Luxembourg adds fintech string to its funds bow

The success of Luxembourg as a financial centre has been closely linked to the European Ucits Directive of 1985, allowing distribution of investment funds across borders. More recently, the AIFMD, the directive for alternative investments, has also played a crucial part in the development of the jurisdiction.
