Increase your visibility and develop your international reach

The strategic focus of AFG’s European and International Relations department is to promote French asset management abroad.

From Paris and internationally, the international promotion division aims to raise awareness of French asset management expertise and support French asset managers in their international development.

  • The Export Club supports AFG members in their international development.
    The aim of the club is to provide answers to questions raised by asset managers, through a highly practical, business-oriented exchange of views with experts on specific topics, both general and country-specific.
    • Country meetings, dedicated to AFG’s members, highlight the specific features of each market, the distribution channels, the investors’ culture and advice shared by local players. Three « profile » sheets (market, costs and taxation) are published for each meeting, and are regularly updated.
