Luxembourg continues to be a leading domicile in Europe for vehicles investing into internationally diversified Private Equity portfolios, as well as for Private Equity transactions structuring. With its pragmatic regulatory regime and tax efficient structures, Luxembourg has continued to drive forward its market growth, despite the turbulence of the last two years.
This new programme of trainings, created in a partnership between ALFI and the IFBL, aims to support the growing international reputation of Luxembourg as a major Private Equity hub. It aims to do this through a continued increase in the level of quality and professionalism delivered by service providers and to provide a broader understanding generally of the industry’s activities, actors and structures.
These courses offer a brand new learning opportunity for Private Equity professionals both in and outside Luxembourg and together represent an important additional possibility in career path certification at the IFBL. The courses are directed at all levels, from beginner to active professional and from those simply seeking to deepen their knowledge in specific areas to others wishing to consolidate and certify their experience through recognised examinations.
New in 2012 for International Participants - In order to make our courses more accessible to those coming from outside Luxembourg, we have grouped together the fundamentals modules taking place in May 2012 and modified the start time for the Fundamentals module.
Structure and contents
Three basic modules (M1) deliver the basic theory, providing the: fundamentals of Private Equity, the basics of Private Equity fund structuring and Private Equity roles and responsibilities. A certification “Specialist Private Equity - Administration” will be issued to participants who sit and successfully pass the associated exams for these modules:
A combination of eight further, advanced and specialist modules (M2, M3 and M’ level), provide a more practical orientation, operating on the basis of exercises, case studies and opportunities to master complex issues through interaction with recognized industry professionals.
Two further advanced paths of certification are also available to: “Specialist Private Equity - Business Processes” or “Specialist Private Equity - Accounting” by sitting the Business Process and Controls or the Accounting modules respectively and passing their associated examination. These certifications can be complemented through valuable further optional modules: “Private Equity Strategies (4): Mezzanine, Fund of funds, Microfinance, Opportunistic Real Estate” and two modules concerning “Private Equity Valuation”.
Audience and objectives
The courses are directed at all levels, from beginner to active professional and from those simply seeking to deepen their knowledge in specific areas to others wishing to consolidate and certify their experience through recognised examinations.
