Private EquityLuxembourg, A European Private Equity capital
The PE industry was not immune to the pervasive shock caused by COVID-19 during 2020. However, it has since bounced back, so much so that 2021 saw the global PE industry posting the strongest results since 1980; striking deals worth over €740 billion by the end of Q3 2021 and propelling global M&A activity to an all-time high.
Building on its unique ecosystem and positioning, Luxembourg has become a European hub for the PE industry, with its local market expected to grow at least 10% per year up to 2025.

Expertise and innovation
PE players established in the Grand Duchy benefit from the country’s multijurisdictional expertise, its multilingual talent pool, and its multiculturalism which provides significant benefits as they operate across Europe and beyond.
Luxembourg’s early implementation of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) prompted the development of a sizable industry in the field. This has been further bolstered by the introduction of the Limited Partnerships regime and the Reserved Alternative Investment Fund (RAIF), providing a higher degree of flexibility as supervision takes place at the AIFM rather than fund level.
