BUILDING BRIDGES WITH THE USA
Wednesday, 15 June 2022
17:30-19:00 CEST / 11:30am EDT / 8:30am PDT
At a time of great macroeconomic uncertainty, it is critical that we continue to strengthen political and financial ties across the Atlantic. Our upcoming Building Bridges with the United States livestream aims to focus on the latter, exploring the close partnership between the USA and Luxembourg and the latest trends in finance in Europe.
His Excellency Thomas Barrett, U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg, will open the event discussing the longstanding ties, both political and financial, between the US and Luxembourg. A panel featuring Alberta Brusi from Citibank, Joanna Pecenik from Allen & Overy, Abbas Suleiman from Invesco Real Estate and Robert White from EY Luxembourg will then explore how US alternative managers can expand their European offerings.
Given the rise of the sustainable finance regulatory agenda in both regions, as well as increasing attention paid to both the crypto and payments sectors, two interviews will dive into these key trends:
Karen O’Sullivan, Head of the CSSF’s Innovation, Payments, Market Infrastructures and Governance Department and Solenne Niedercorn-Desouches, Executive Director at Fabric Ventures, will be on hand in the first to guide us through the EU Payments and Crypto Landscape prior to the MiCAR implementation.
They’re followed by Denise Voss, Chairwoman of LuxFLAG, Michael Pedroni, Chief Global Affairs Officer at ICI and Jennifer de Nijs, Special Adviser for Sustainbale Finance at the Luxembourg Ministry of Finance, who will explore the distinct approaches being taken regarding sustainable finance in both the US and Europe.
