Our European Footprint

By Victor Van Hoorn

ICI Global is the leading community of asset management firms worldwide. Our purpose is to help our members navigate their most complex policy issues and be their global advocates, capitalizing on our presence in Brussels, London, Hong Kong, and Washington, DC.

While ICI Global operates seamlessly across time zones, we are deeply committed to providing our perspectives on the European Union’s top priorities. Asset managers have an important role to play to contribute to the advancement of EU’s critical goals, from the pursuit of a true Capital Markets Union and retail investor empowerment to sustainable investing, and economic resilience.

That’s why we are expanding our team of experts in Brussels. With a more profound presence and additional resources, we aim to provide a unique multi-jurisdictional global perspective to the European policy discussions relevant to our industry while leveraging the extensive research and data expertise of ICI to ensure our members’ collective expertise can be drawn upon to help regulators, investors, and businesses navigate their way.

ICI Global was honoured to host an event in late September to introduce our new teammates to the Brussels community. Explore our bios and take a look at some of the photos from the evening.
