Luxembourg has built its international reputation in the UCITS area and regards the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive ("AIFMD") which came into force last year, as a huge opportunity.
Given Luxembourg’s position as the European leader in the cross-border space, the AIFMD will further enhance Luxembourg as a leading domicile for funds and management companies in the alternative sector.
With the support of the Luxembourg government, ATTF ( Agence de Transfert de Technologie financière) offers training programmes and internationally recognised certifications in financial matters to more than 30 partner countries. LFF talked to ATTF Directors, Josée Thyes and Patrick Wallerand to look back on what has been achieved up to now and the challenges and opportunities ahead for the agency.
