The topic for our Oxford Debate this season will highlight the financial services sector. With transparency requirements increasingly being strengthened, are current and future initiatives sufficient to maintain the country's economic well-being?

Luxembourg's financial sector has seen massive upheavals in recent years with revelations by whistle-blowers resulting in a high number of financial scandals, including Birkenfeld (2008), LuxLeaks (2014) and the Panama Papers (2016), among others. Under pressure from public opinion, political leaders have taken action and international regulations are currently being implemented. We appear to be heading towards greater transparency with information exchanges by tax authorities becoming more widespread.

Beyond regulatory changes and the disappearance of old practices, speakers will be asked to deliberate on the the financial sector's future. Will it be the same once all of these changes have been implemented? Or should it reinvent and reposition itself?

In other words, can one say: "A new financial services sector is necessary"?

  • PRO: Alfred Steinherr (SHU), Jean-Sébastien Zippert (Etika)
  • CONTRA: Tom Théobald (Luxembourg for Finance), Philipp von Restorff (ABBL)
