On Thursday 9 January 2020, the Luxembourg-based trust services company LuxTrust opened its French subsidiary “LuxTrust France” in Paris.

In the presence of its shareholders, partners, customers and Luxembourg's Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Health, Etienne Schneider, LuxTrust opened its French subsidiary, LuxTrust France, located on the Avenue des Champs Elysées in the centre of Paris last week.

The company, which manages the digital identity and trust services of all Luxembourg citizens and companies, has thus extended beyond national borders and is bringing its expertise to the French market on matters such as digital identity management, complete dematerialisation of processes and electronic signature.

Astrid Clausse, Sales Director of LuxTrust France, commented: “Establishing ourselves in Paris is a strategic choice to meet the proximity needs of our growing number of French clients and partners".

Pascal Rogiest, CEO of LuxTrust, added: “While LuxTrust's core business was initially focused on digital identity and trust services, we have since extended our digital solutions to meet the challenges of companies in full. These solutions address issues such as document management, multiple signatures and personal information management. Their effective application can only be achieved with the help of strong and committed partners which we are delighted to have already in France".

A round table discussion on digital identity took place on the occasion of the opening with Marco Di Luzio, CMO of InfoCert (Italy), Kris de Ryck, CEO of itsme® (Belgium), Cédric Clément, Head of the Digital Pole of the Caisse de Dépôts et Consignations (France) and Etienne Combet, co-founder of SEALWeb. Discussions focussed on the evolution of digital identity and trust services with the objective of interoperability of systems in Europe.

During his speech, Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider stated: “Today LuxTrust is one of the many factors which for so long have made Luxembourg a preferred location for the digital market and innovative digital trust services. Henceforth we are no longer talking about a Luxembourg company, but about a European company".

With a shareholder structure composed 50% of the Italian company InfoCert, a member of the TINEXTA group, with offices in Paris and Brussels, LuxTrust has made no secret of its ambition to confirm with InfoCert and Camerfirma their position as the European leader in digital trust services, while ensuring a local presence and trust in priority geographies, including France.
