Our Working Groups

About our working groups

LuxCMA has established 9 Working Groups (WG) and Task Forces (TF) that are sponsored by members of the Board, who will ensure that everything is running smoothly. Each WG & TF elects their own Chairperson(s) who will lead the group and take care of all the organisation.

LuxCMA’s working groups and task forces focuses on facilitating the access to a wide network of capital market professionals, sharing best practices & views about the industry and it’s future, staying updated on legal and regulatory developments, setting market standards and providing input for capital markets sector proposals in cooperation with other associations to influence future policies.
