SGSS in Luxembourg develops its services offering for alternative funds

Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) has created a centre of expertise in Luxembourg for alternative funds, which provides specific experience in private equity, real estate and tangible assets.

Institutional investors or other professionals who manage these funds, such as family offices or wealth managers, now have a single point of entry to SGSS’ entire range of accounting, trustee, fund domiciliation, fund administration, transfer agent and registrar services.

This centre of expertise dedicated to alternative funds ensures that investors benefit from specialist knowledge of the specific constraints of these asset classes. A team of specialists from SGSS Luxembourg accompanies clients throughout their investments and provides all the securities services which conform to the international regulations applicable to this category of fund.

SGSS is one of the largest securities services providers on the Luxembourg financial market, as confirmed by the annual rankings from Lipper1. Luxembourg is the world’s second largest centre for investment funds, the European Union’s largest domicile for captive reinsurance companies2 and the largest centre for private banking in the euro zone.
In November 2012, SGSS won the “Luxembourg Quality Award” (category ”Large-sized Companies”). This award is supported by the Luxembourg Movement for Quality and the Ministry of the Economy and Foreign Trade.
