Key points

Luxembourg and Deloitte are helping credit and debt funds exploit investment opportunities in a prudent, efficient and, optionally, a lightly regulated way.

Why Luxembourg is leading the way

Now more than ever, Luxembourg offers a comprehensive product range for all players wishing to distribute their products across Europe and fully benefit from the newly introduced regulations (AIFM Directive, banking regulations, etc.).
