More widely, DIT assists UK financial firms landing in North America, with strong representation among innovative UK FinTechs, and hosts an array of thought-leadership events at Consulates across North America, including in New York’s midtown east.
As the arm of the Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy at the Consulate in NY, the Luxembourg Trade and Investment Office in New York (LTIO-NY) is fully committed to assisting companies with the expansion of their business to Luxembourg and their entrance into the European markets. We also facilitate trade between Luxembourg and the Eastern part of the US as well as Canada and support Luxembourg-based businesses in the establishment and development of their activities on the North American market.
Our executive team offers personalized services and provides companies that are interested in setting up in Luxembourg with information on the general and sector-specific business environments and related government policies; contact facilitation with potential business partners; and access to high-ranking government officials and key network contacts such as Luxembourg for Finance and industry associations.
The growing presence of Luxembourg actors of the financial sector in NY as well as the recurring visits of the Minister of Finance and yearly roadshows of ALFI and LPEA indicate the many opportunities in further connecting both financial centers.
