If Luxembourg and its financial place are unfamiliar to you, its specific points and the bonuses at the root of its success with an international clientele of companies and private individuals can be found below in just a few lines.
A top-flight financial centre
Luxembourg’s financial solidity
One of the rare countries in Europe to benefit from the much-coveted “AAA” rating, awarded by Standard and Poor’s on the basis of its solvability and its exemplary financial solidity, the Grand Duchy is also:
- the No. 1 private banking centre in the Euro zone;
- the 2nd largest investment fund domiciliation centre in the world.
Luxembourg’s economic success
Luxembourg owes its success in the main to:
- great political and social stability;
- a modern legal and statutory framework constantly adapted to changes in the markets, thanks to a continuous dialogue between the government, the legislator and the private sector;
- one of the most competitive fiscal regimes, both for private individuals and for companies, strengthened by several (non) dual taxation treaties;
- the concentration of high qualified professionals in several financial niches and sectors;
- real cross-border financial expertise;
- a strong investor protection culture by attentive and competent watchdogs;
- its strict rules relating to combating money laundering.
Add to this the desire of all the financial parties and the government, through the LUXFIN2020 plan, to:
- capitalize on the expertise and continue the development of Luxembourg as a specialized financial centre in cross-border financial services;
- make the financial location the reference onshore centre in the European Union for global financial services suppliers;
- encourage innovation and become the European leader in digital financial services.
