Corinne Lamesch has over 20 years' experience in the Luxembourg fund industry.
The Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry (ALFI) announced on Wednesday the appointment of Corinne Lamesch as its new chair. She succeeds Denise Voss, who held the role for four years.
Lamesch identified three top priorities as she takes on the new role. In a communiqué, she puts sustainable finance top of the agenda, given its priority among policymakers. She further cites viable opportunities through the PEPP, EU’s pan-European personal pension scheme, designed for consumers to be able to save for their retirement on a voluntary basis.
Another priority will be for ALFI to continue growing the alternative investment funds sector, alongside UCITS, “with Luxembourg as the leading European jurisdiction for all alternative asset classes.”
In light of her appointment, Lamesch said, “The asset management industry in Europe is at a critical juncture where new political and societal trends will bring both challenges and opportunities,” adding: “Asset managers have a unique opportunity to strongly influence the strategies of companies globally so they are more aligned with the values of our changing society and better connected to the interests of future generations.”
Lamesch, a member of the ALFI board of directors since June 2017, has over 20 years’ experience in the Luxembourg fund industry, including her most recent role as country head, Luxembourg and head of legal, Europe, of Fidelity International. She also has previous experience at Allen & Overy and Clifford Chance.
