Fund Migration 

Fund migration is a challenging project whose success mainly depends on the change management team experience in cross-disciplinary assignments.  At KPMG, we were involved in several major fund migrations on the Luxembourg market.  Our risk-oriented approach helps ensure that the project specifications have been assessed through a risk-based analysis.
