Loutsch was a lawyer by profession.[1] On 6 November 1915 he was appointed prime minister, and Director-General (Minister) for Foreign Affairs. The Loutsch Ministry consisted only of members of the Right Party, but the Left had a majority in the Chamber of Deputies.[1] Thereafter, Grand Duchess Marie-Adélaïde dissolved the legislature and ordered new elections to be held on 23 December 1915.[1] The new Chamber, however, also did not give the Right Party a majority.[1] On 11 January 1916 the Loutsch government lost a confidence vote, and Loutsch was succeeded by Victor Thorn on 24 February 1916.[1]

From 1920 to 1934 he was president of the insurance company La Luxembourgeoise.[1] From 1925 to 1934 he was a Deputy in the Chamber for the Union nationale indépendante.[1]

He died in 1946 in Brussels.
