Roundtable: Private Equity in Luxembourg
PE in Luxembourg: the impact of private equity and venture capital in the real economy
The LPEA invited policy makers and officers from the public administration for an exclusive session explaining what is Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) and how the sector impacts the Luxembourg economy.
Known as an international hub for Private Equity funds, Luxembourg plays an important role as an international platform for private equity and venture capital investments. Few people know however that Luxembourg itself features many PE-VC backed businesses, among which some leading financial services companies and fast-growing start-ups. The Private Equity sector employs today thousands of people and is one of the most dynamic sector of Luxembourg’s financial centre.
At the roundtable we explored:
- What is Private Equity and Venture Capital
- What’s its role in Europe’s growth and how it provides long term and sustainable investments
- Overview of the latest Luxembourg statistics
- Case studies featuring local success stories
This event was exclusive to policy makers, officers from the public administration and other guest stakeholders (eg. trade associations).
