Event Description

Investment hubs are jurisdictions that facilitate the flow of international investments thanks to their stable legal and political environment, a sound financial infrastructure, and a professional ecosystem. According to the study by SEO Amsterdam Economics, a selection of 5 investment hubs – the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Ireland, Singapore and Mauritius – collectively represent around 1/3 of global FDI.
 
The vast majority of inward and outward investments in these five hubs are facilitated by Corporate Service Providers, who are highly regulated professionals ensuring full compliance with regulations and preventing fraudulent activities. Despite playing a significant role in many ways, including fostering economic growth in developing countries and improving the integrity of the financial system, these contributions remain largely unknown. The role of investment hubs in the international financial system is all too often misunderstood.
 
The event and panel discussion seek to clarify the role of investment hubs and explore how their activities are linked to topical debates on the EU agenda, such as initiatives in the field of taxation, transparency in the financial sector and the assistance to developing countries.
