Mourant joins Ogier and Maples in Europe’s leading funds hub

Luxembourg is synonymous with funds – its investment funds industry ranks as the largest EU fund domicile jurisdiction and the second largest globally with €5.3 trillion in assets under management. It has also developed into a major European hub for private equity funds: Luxembourg’s early implementation of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) was the initial driver, followed more recently by Brexit. Meanwhile, several major companies, such as Amazon, Skype and PayPal, have chosen it as their European HQ.
