LuxCMA Webinar | Securitisation of CLOs/CDOs: A new dawn for Luxembourg




Since the adoption of the new securitisation law, the LuxCMA Securitisation Task Force has been working on a paper to determine and illustrate how the implemented changes open the door to a range of new structuring options in Luxembourg. 

Prior to the release of the document in question, the aim of this webinar was to share its highlights and to analyse the main amended law caters allowing more flexibility in the set-up of new structures with a specific focus on CLO / CDOs.

At this occasion, our panelists have endeavoured to demonstrate how the modernisation of the Luxembourg law of 22 March 2004 on securitisation is ushering in a new dawn for Luxembourg in CLOs securitisation.

LuxCMA Conference & Webinar | Structuring a DLT debt issuance in Luxembourg




Over the past months, the LuxCMA Infrastructure Working Group has been working on a theoretical Proof of Concept document to determine and illustrate how the distributed ledger technology (DLT) can be leveraged by the entire value chain to support the issuance and servicing of a debt security in public capital markets. LuxCMA shared the highlights of the document in question during a conference event heldat the  auditorium.

At this occasion, the LuxCMA has also invited representatives along the value chain, including issuers and investors, to join as part of a second panel to discuss their experience with the adoption of DLT technology in debt capital markets transactions, and share their views on the main challenges to be addressed as well as the developments to be expected moving forward.

Beyond the pleasure to be able to re-convene in person with our industry peers, the meeting offered a high-quality debate centred on what is undoubtedly one of the hottest topics in today’s capital markets and therefore attracted a lot of interest, from both within and beyond our national borders.

LuxCMA Webinar | The CLOs Market Evolution: Luxembourg, a jurisdiction of choice?


Explaining the structure and investor-friendly features of collateralized loan obligations. This was the aim of our webinar dedicated to this often misunderstood sector of structured credit.

Since many years, Luxembourg has established itself as one of the leading financial hubs in Europe for retail and alternative strategies. The low interest rate environment has without any doubt pushed Asset Managers to find more attractive investment solutions, namely in the alternative space. In the same time, investors are increasingly sophisticated and well informed on the various options and now request multi-strategy solutions.

Luxembourg, being the largest Capital Markets facilitator in Europe with a strong legal framework, is a natural place to offer also to CLO structures.

Our speakers Ariane Mehrshahi Marks, Counsel at Hogan Lovells (Luxembourg) LLP, Atif Kamal, Director Client Services - Capital Markets at TMF Group (Luxembourg), Marie Isabelle Richardin, Partner at PwC (Luxembourg) and Rolf Caspers, Global Head of Capital Markets at Sanne Luxembourg touched on some of the developments that they have seen over the last months.
