Welcome to the Banking and Asset Management Club

The EY Banking and Asset Management Club is a discussion platform covering a wide range of subject matters from risk management and regulatory compliance to cybersecurity, operational efficiency or digitalization. Each of the events organized will target key topics or issues that impact and disrupt the day-to-day business of Luxembourg banks, management companies and service providers. Because the issues of yesterday hardly resemble the issues of tomorrow, the Club will bring to you the insights of EY subject matter resources. These insights will try and help you to navigate a changing world where new regulations could be turned into opportunities and operations could be improved through innovative solutions.
