Overview

Arendt's investment management practice is the market leader in Luxembourg thanks to the expert advice it provides, combining pragmatism and in-depth knowledge of the sector. Our clients encompass all kinds of firms, from small start-ups to niche boutiques and the biggest international asset managers.
