Together with the University of Luxembourg and our colleagues from Arendt & Medernach, we are honoured to be collaborating on the creation of this new Chair in Investment Funds Law within the Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance.
Along with our participation in the creation of the programme, our firm will also take part in the practical courses with the involvement of some of our experts in seminars and workshops.
Located in Luxembourg, it is the first Master’s degree in Europe entirely dedicated to investment funds law. The course will benefit from Luxembourg's position as European leader in the distribution of investment funds, as well as the expertise and involvement of renowned experts who will provide teaching, by way of an internships, based on case studies.
The Master’s degree also responds to the ongoing needs of the Luxembourg financial centre to adapt to the ever-changing European legal framework for investment funds and to attract, retain and develop the talents needed.
"At a time when attracting new qualified talent is a major challenge for the financial centre, Luxembourg had to provide a university programme aimed at the future players in the investment fund market. In this context, supporting the creation of the first university Master's degree dedicated to investment funds was an obvious choice for us, given the commitment our firm has always had to the development of the financial centre.” said Sophie Laguesse, Partner and member of the Management Committee of Elvinger Hoss Prussen.
The Chair will focus on three areas of activity: teaching, research and knowledge transfer. Discover more about the programme : www.en.uni.lu
