On 6 April 2017, NautaDutilh Luxembourg hosted a breakfast meeting on recent trends and developments in fund financing in Luxembourg at the Waldorf Hilton in the heart of London’s West End. The event was attended by bankers, asset managers and lawyers.
A breakfast was served in an elegant Edwardian-style meeting room. The speakers were Josée Weydert, Ezechiel Havrenne, Jad Nader and Ann Blaton.
The meeting started with an introduction to Luxembourg’s significant position as a financial and investment funds centre, highlighting the steady growth of fund financing activity in recent months which is expected to continue.
Subsequently, the presentations focused on two main issues: key fund structuring considerations and finance documentation. In the first half, the speakers discussed the main types of Luxembourg funds with a particular focus on debt funds. The second half was devoted to specific aspects of Luxembourg fund financing.
The seminar ended with a Q&A and informal discussion.
