The Deloitte Horizon Conference in September will address new opportunities and emerging trends in Luxembourg’s financial sector.

As the world is slowly transitioning to a post-pandemic “new normal”, some of our best-loved traditions from “the before time” are slowly making a welcome comeback.

While 2021 has not been the best year for many business and cultural events, we are excited about the return of the Horizon Conference—Deloitte Luxembourg’s annual flagship event that offers an innovative and cutting-edge take on current concerns and opportunities in the evolving financial industry landscape.

For the 10th edition in September, the event will be in a hybrid “phygital” format, with most of the audience online and some participants in the Deloitte Luxembourg auditorium. We are planning a highly engaging program that will drill down into the future of the financial sector by challenging the status quo and getting insights from industry leaders.

Among the industry professionals from around the world that will gather in Luxembourg for the event, Nicolas Mackel, CEO of Luxembourg for Finance, will share an eagerly awaited preview of a study into the future of the Luxembourg financial sector, conducted in collaboration with Deloitte Luxembourg.

The purpose of the study is to gain an in-depth understanding of Luxembourg’s financial sector and provide a snapshot of the forces driving the market, the trends in the Luxembourg economy and the positioning of Luxembourg as a financial hub going forward.

Our study report will present ideas around possible future scenarios aimed at maintaining the position of Luxembourg’s financial sector and enhancing its competitiveness.

It will also offer an extensive review of the trends that will have a long-term impact on Luxembourg’s financial sector and shape the business models and offerings of sector players. The trends covered include:

·       Increasing competitiveness of other EU financial hubs as they gain ground on key competitive advantages

·       New ways of working, with increasing use of digital solutions and remote working

·       Shift in investor behaviors and investors’ increased awareness of ESG considerations

·       Growing interest of skilled talent in careers with a positive impact on society

·       Stronger demand for sustainable, green and inclusive offerings

·       Rapid growth of tokenization and central bank digital currencies

The study also looks at the challenges the Luxembourg financial sector might face in the future, and outlines how they can be turned into differentiating and growth opportunities if tackled using an innovative and competitive approach.
