Record Assets under management in May 2015

Recent years have seen one of the most remarkable periods in the history of the Luxembourg fund sector. After 21 months of uninterrupted growth, net assets under management peaked in May 2015 at EUR 3.600 billion, ending the year on EUR 3.500 billion. This figure had more than doubled in less than ten years.

Top 3 Luxembourg investment fund initiators

There was no change in the ranking of the top ten leading fund initiators in terms of net assets. The US remained number one with 21.7%, but their market share has fallen for the fourth year running. The UK was next with 16.6% (following four years of growth) with Germany (14.7%) ranked third.

Luxembourg - the leading fund domicile in Europe

Luxembourg remains the leading fund domicile in Europe, with a market share close to the combined total for Ireland and Germany, the second and third placed countries.

Big interest in ALFI events worldwide

Attracting new business to Luxembourg and opening up promising new markets to Luxembourg domiciled investment funds is one of the key activities of the association.

 

Sharing knowledge and experience

A great deal of ALFI's work is carried out in Technical Committees and Forums. Members of these groups are representatives of ALFI members, contributing their experience on a voluntary basis. Technical Committees have been set up to cover issues relating to a generic area of the fund industry.
