Distribution trends: aviation as a reference industry

GDS (Global Distribution System), AEA (Association of European Airlines) and IATA (International Air Transport Association) are acronyms that the fund industry might not be too familiar with; however they belong to an industry that also underwent profound changes over the past decade. Changes in the global distribution systems impacted not only travelers and intermediaries, but most of all the airlines directly. Prestigious brands disappeared and made room for low cost airlines, airline mergers and alliances. Are there lessons to be learned by the fund industry?

At the next Global Distribution Conference taking place in Luxembourg, on 24-25 September, ALFI (Association of the Luxembourg Fund Industry) is pleased to welcome Michael Gloor, senior director sales with Lufthansa Group who will be interviewed by Germain Birgen, head of business development, Banque de Luxembourg.

Join us to hear pertinent findings on changes in distribution channels, direct distribution, generational shift, innovative pricing and more.
