ALFI London Conference – 21 April 2015
LMDF speaks at ALFI London conference on impact investing
LMDF today spoke at the annual London conference as part of the roundtable discussing Luxembourg’s role in fostering impact investing. The Fund’s Executive Director presented the successful track record Luxembourg had as a fund platform for microfinance funds with 78% of the 5.8 billion Euros domiciled in Luxembourg (to which LMDF contributes a modest 20 million).
He stressed that Luxembourg’s financial infrastructure, although already substantial should improve further to repeat the success for the larger impact investing sector. The main driver to improve infrastructure is the increased regulation, threatening particularly smaller impact fund structures.
