A partner and head of the investment fund department at Bonn Steichen & Partners is equally at home in the boardroom and the vineyard.
Straddling town and country
Luc Courtois easily moves from the earthy world of his rural
roots to the thrilling world of high finance and investing. This
native of the Belgian countryside is simultaneously a cosmopolitan,
equally at ease in boardrooms of the largest global
financial institutions and in vineyards searching for the best
grapes. By experience and education he is comfortable in
the worlds of both the concrete and the abstract. That is what
makes Luc Courtois successful, a founding partner and Head
of the Investment Management practice at Luxembourg’s
Bonn Steichen & Partners. At university Luc spent as much
time developing businesses as studying attending courses.
That did not keep him from earning degrees in both law and
international affairs and, most important, graduation with the
golden “1%” that garnered him a scholarship at the Georgetown
University Law Center. With his LLM in hand Luc Courtois
returned to Luxembourg and investing.
Loyal and available
Luc Courtois is more than the sum of his impressive resume:
what makes Luc Courtois more than just excellent in his life
and his work is his dedication to his family, his friends, and
his clients. Family, friends, and clients are his foundations.
Notwithstanding his many accomplishments, his greatest
achievements are his family and friends, and the deep confidence
of his clients. His dedication to his clients, their needs,
their business, is the basis of his success. He places himself
in his clients’ shoes, a rare talent. This allows him to produce
tailor-made results for them. His legal background serves him
well, as do his fertile imagination and his creative instincts: he
applies and interprets the law in ways that allow him, and his
clients, to find innovative and creative solutions to problems
that for others would be intractable.
Living life with gusto
Luc Courtois understands how fleeting life is. Thus he lives
every day to the fullest measure. Every moment with family and
friends, every moment with clients, is too valuable to squander.
He is a passionate traveler, seeking out the wildest countrysides
as often as the best vineyards. Winemaking still beckons
him but dedication to his clients and his work hold him fast to
the world of investment. This open-minded and cosmopolitan
man cannot be pigeonholed. His tastes are eclectic and multicultural,
a trait that allows him to fit comfortably wherever he is,
with whomever he encounters and enthusiastically prepared
to meet the challenges of the future.
