Horizon Conference 2012
Looking into the future of the financial services industry
Deloitte Luxembourg organized the second edition of its annual Horizon conference in the Luxembourg Philharmonie on 21 June 2012. Through a variety of speeches and panel discussions, the conference offered a broad view on the financial services industry and the way ahead.
This edition zoomed in on Private Equity investments and highlighted Luxembourg’s role as a hub for family offices. Respecting Luxembourg’s position as an important fund center, prominent speakers also looked at fund distribution and novelties in the regulatory landscape. As an additional bonus, Uli Grabenwarter, a researcher on responsible investments, introduced the audience to impact investing, while Luxembourg Minister of Finance Luc Frieden delivered the opening address.
