During its Annual General Meeting held yesterday, the Luxembourg Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (LPEA) announced the election of 11 new members to its Board of Directors (the “Board”).

The Annual report presented at the AGM reflected the increased growth and diversity of the association with the creation of new Technical Committees and Clubs focusing on specific practices such as Fund administration, financing in PE, insurance, PE technology and Corporate Venturing. The training of PE-VC professionals through the LPEA Academy was also reinforced as well as the support in the attraction of new talents with the launch of LPEA’s digital job fair.
The association also extended its content building activities with the publication of four dedicated magazines and the recording of a series of videos which opened up the sector to a broader audience.
During last year the membership of the LPEA increased by 26 members to 324 in total with growth coming from all types of members (Full members, Associate members and Affiliate members). This reflects the continuous appetite for PE/VC asset classes in Luxembourg despite successive confinement periods.
According to Stephane Pesch, CEO of the LPEA “2021 was still heavily disturbed during the first part of the year and experienced again a rougher patch around the end of the year but overall we experienced a rather unusual and simultaneously very resilient and successful year for the association.”
Claus Mansfeldt, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the association, commented: “2021 closed-out with record volumes globally, especially in the main buyout markets –the first year to surpass $800 billion in aggregate transaction volume (with some sources even citing $1 trillion in value), beating the prior record (2007) by nearly 20%.”
The AGM closed with the keynote speech of Andrey Kolodyuk, Chairman of the Ukrainian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association, who is leading the “Ukraine Redevelopment and Recovery Plan”, a strategic initiative to overcome the effects of war in Ukraine with the active participation of international private equity investors and investments.
The LPEA is the representative body of Private Equity and Venture Capital professionals in Luxembourg. With 350 members today, LPEA plays a leading role in the discussion and development of the investment framework and actively promotes the industry beyond the country’s borders.
