PE and VC fund structuring, quo vadis Belgium?

Should Belgian fund managers flag out to Luxembourg?

We would like to announce a DLA Piper master class on fund structuring with special focus on cross-border structuring, the impact of the Belgian tax reform and how the new ELTIF regulation can contribute creating a level playing field.

The masterclass will take place 25 May at Botanic Sanctuary Antwerp, next door to the new DLA Piper working hub.

Hope to see you there
