European directives relating to mutual funds and alternative investments have been key to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg’s success as a leading centre for financial services. Its enviable line-up of banks, law firms and investment houses means the jurisdiction is proving an attractive destination for UK, US and Asian businesses to shift some of their operations to during uncertain times following the Brexit referendum.

Can Luxembourg attract, train and absorb enough qualified staff to service the expected surge of new business and can the country’s financial sector identify enough new niches to continue its steady growth? In PWM’s Spotlight Series, Yuri Bender, editor-in-chief of Professional Wealth Management, speaks to leading figures in Luxembourg’s financial services industry about the strengths of the jurisdiction and challenges ahead.
