A bridge between the Middle East, Northern Africa and Europe.

The Middle East region is important to the Luxembourg fund industry and this is reflected in the frequent visits by the Association Luxembourgeoise des Fonds d’Investissement (ALFI) and Luxembourg For Finance (LFF) representatives. KPMG supports those initiatives by participating in ALFI and LFF roadshows as well as state visits in the region.

The Luxembourg Supervisory Authority for the Financial Sector, the CSSF, has signed co-operation agreements, so-called Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs), with a number of supervisory authorities such as the Dubai Financial Services Authority, the Central Bank of Bahrain, the Securities Commission Malaysia, the Emirates Securities and Commodities Authority, the Qatar Financial Centre Regulation Authority and the Egyptian Financial Supervisory Authority.

Luxembourg’s strategic location and openness to the world has already attracted a number of players from the Middle East, Indonesia and Malaysia. We provide a large range of services to our clients of all sizes operating in various sectors.

Our multi-disciplinary team consists of a number of specialists, including specialists in tax, real estate and infrastructure, transaction services (including due diligence), accounting, valuation services, and Islamic finance who are fluent in Arabic and Turkish.
