WHY CHOOSE LUXEMBOURG?

CAPITAL OF EUROPE
WITH LEADING
FINANCIAL CENTER

Luxembourg City is one of the de facto capitals of the European Union (alongside Brussels and Strasbourg), as it is the seat of several institutions, agencies and bodies of the European Union, including the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Auditors, the Secretariat of the European Parliament, the European Investment Bank, the European Investment Fund, and the European Stability Mechanism.

Luxembourg’s expertise in cross-border financial services gives it an edge as an EU-onshore base for international private banking. Luxembourg offers a one-stop shop for private banking and global wealth management, encompassing all of a client’s assets and business interests across multiple jurisdictions. In 2018 the total AuM of Private banks is €360 billion with 42% of clients’ assets originating from non-European countries.

Luxembourg provides an operational hub for many international financial institutions and is home to 136 international banks. For non-EU banking groups Luxembourg is a key gateway to the EU. Institutions from the US, Canada, Switzerland, Latin America and Asia benefit from a passport for their products and services, providing access to the EU Single Market. Following their example, FinTech newcomers such as PayPal and Rakuten have chosen to set up their pan-European banks in Luxembourg.

Luxembourg-domiciled investment funds are distributed in over 70 countries. The world’s leading asset managers have chosen Luxembourg as the centre for their international fund ranges. Luxembourg is handling 62% of cross-border investment funds worldwide from over 70 countries (PwC Global Fund Distribution 2018) and the AuM in investment funds is €4.3 trillion (CSSF). Out of the top 100 asset managers worldwide, 98 have funds domiciled in Luxembourg (PwC global Fund Distribution 2018).

Luxembourg is a prime location for private equity, venture capital, hedge funds and real estate funds. The country’s international business environment has given rise to a number of structures designed to facilitate PE and real estate acquisitions with cross-border components.

Unmatched Quality of Life: Healthcare, Education and Culture

Luxembourg has one of the best state-funded healthcare systems in Europe. The system is based on three fundamental principles: compulsory health insurance, free choice of provider for patients and compulsory provider compliance with the fixed set of fees for services. The state-funded system, overseen by the country’s Caisse de Maladie, adheres to high standards and provides basic medical coverage to all citizens. Private healthcare is also available in Luxembourg and citizens can select their own doctors, specialists and hospital.

Luxembourg has a varied international community. The country has close to 48% of non-Luxembourgers with 170 different nationalities. Private and international schools can be the perfect solution for an expat student (multinational corporation executives, children of diplomats, NGO staff) in Luxembourg. They provide similar standards of schooling around the globe, providing for an easy transition between schools whether they are in France or Vietnam.

In 2011, Luxembourg was ranked as having the second highest per capita GDP in the world at $80,119 (PPP), with the city having developed into a banking and administrative centre. In the 2011 Mercer worldwide survey of 221 cities, Luxembourg was placed first for personal safety while it was ranked 19th for quality of living.
