By Stephane Pesch, CEO, LPEA.
We at the LPEA, were honoured to be a part of the European Finance Summit Luxembourg Finance Awards this year. We congratulate Luxembourg For Finance, our long-term partner and ally for winning the “Outstanding Contribution to the Luxembourg Financial Centre” award.
Created in 2010, with 303 members today, the Luxembourg Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (LPEA) is the representative body of Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) practitioners in Luxembourg.
For the past 10 years, the LPEA actively contributed to the creation of new standards and market practices that make Luxembourg a global reference and a location like no other in terms of concentration of PE/VC-related services.
In order to make the necessary changes and exciting things happen, we welcome experienced professionals from member firms to participate in our Technical Committees and Clubs. These groups within the association are working hard to improve the ecosystem and make it one of the most attractive ones around the world. They raise important questions, launch new ideas and help us organise events, which we believe are the key to exchange knowledge and get inspired for new beginnings. We organise more than 40 events in Luxembourg, in Europe and across the ocean on an annual basis and recently expanded to a wider audience adding online events and conferences while embracing the new reality forced by the pandemic.
Addressing an important discussion about the attraction of talents to Luxembourg and proper training solutions for the sector, the LPEA launched its Academy in 2020 to train young professionals. The association also actively promotes careers in the asset class to candidates looking for opportunities in Luxembourg. The Academy initiative was shortly followed by the 1st LPEA Job Fair which was born from our moto “Matching Talents & Money”. The LPEA and its members look for bright minds, help them find opportunities, welcome them in our fascinating sector and help them grow into top-level practitioners. Isn’t it the whole idea of PE/VC itself?
Our Association is proud to be a part of the Luxembourg community and is delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the country and to create a better world.
