Luxemburg as the gateway to the investment world.
With Brexit that generates a flight by non-British companies to the mainland, with the tradewars between China and the USA, with the situation in the Middle East there is an opportunity for Luxembourg to reinforce its position as gateway to the entire investment world and pivot point for the world of investments. From the small Luxembourg community, all investment types and flavours can be reached. Luxembourg as the prism for all investments and investment professionals. Enough arguments for us to create this first edition of the Trends Investment Summit Luxembourg and for you to attend. Register now.

Presentation: "Climate change: non-linear and disruptive investment implications"
Investors cannot avoid climate change. Whether action to reduce emissions intensifies or temperatures continue to rise, the challenge has profound implications for investors globally. There is now little time for a smooth transition to a low emission economy. It seems inevitable that there will be very disruptive change – either through a rapid shift in energy infrastructure, or through forced adaptation to consequences of more significant and damaging climate change.
Join us to hear our perspectives on the risks and opportunities climate change creates, and the innovative approaches we have developed to monitor, manage and align investments with climate change.
As a global investment manager, we help institutions, intermediaries and individuals meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future. But as the world changes, so do our clients’ needs. That’s why we have a long history of adapting to suit the times and keeping our focus on what matters most to our clients.
Doing this takes experience and expertise. We bring together people and data to spot the trends that will shape the future. This provides a unique perspective which allows us to always invest with conviction. We are responsible for £449.4 billion (€508.2 billion%2F$593.3 billion)* of assets for our clients who trust us to deliver sustainable returns. We remain determined to build future prosperity for them, and for all of society. Today, we have 4,900 people across six continents who focus on doing just this.
We are a global business that’s managed locally. This allows us to always keep our clients’ needs at the heart of everything we do. For over 200 years and more than seven generations we’ve grown and developed our expertise in tandem with our clients’ needs and interests.
