How do you think the Spanish Financial Forum can add value to the financial services industry in Luxembourg and its professionals?
By being a bridge between, firstly, financial institutions and other sector companies (as well as non-sector companies) in order to foster and promote conversations and information exchange that would allow companies like GAM to add value to our customers and society in general. And, secondly, between companies and local government representatives to find common areas of interest to organize events and meetings where mutual shared interests are explored and developed. This way, the Spanish Financial Forum can be a key enabler for a closer and larger collaboration between the two countries.
