Lombard International Assurance S.A., a leading provider of wealth and succession planning solutions for high net worth individuals, families and institutions, has teamed up with Capital Group, one of the largest and most experienced investment companies in the world, to enhance its Multisupport Branche 23 solutions in Belgium. Specifically designed to help individuals and families achieve their long-term objectives and maximise benefits, the new offering combines Capital Group’s fundamental, research-led, bottom-up investment approach with Lombard International Assurance’s know-how in customised insurance-based wealth and succession planning solutions.
Lombard International Assurance S.A’s new offering is available to private clients in Belgium and Luxembourg through Lombard International Assurance’s Multisupport solution, a Branch 23 life insurance contract regulated under Belgian and Luxembourg law, offering the flexibility to invest in one or more Internal Dedicated Funds (IDF). Tailor-made by design, thanks to its great adaptability, it provides a high degree of customisation.
Multisupport solutions incorporate Capital Group’s innovative multi-asset portfolio strategies. The strategies use Capital Group EUR Portfolio Series – a range of four multi-asset portfolios, each of which aims to achieve a specific investment objective. Multisupport solutions accordingly provides individuals and families with a convenient, simple and reliable way to invest towards different goals and risk/return profiles.
Nicolas Demarest, Director, Head of Belux, Lombard International Assurance commented: ‘I am delighted of this new collaboration. Providing our Belgian and Luxembourgish partners and clients with access to the expertise of recognised and experienced global asset managers via our life insurance solutions has always been one of our top priorities. In an increasingly uncertain and volatile economic environment, with low interest rates set to continue, having a robust and diversified asset allocation strategy is key when it comes to protecting and passing on wealth. Our ability to offer a varied range of investment strategies via our Branche 23 life insurance solutions is a clearly distinctive asset, catering to our clients’ investment needs and objectives, and allowing for truly bespoke wealth and succession planning. Joining Capital Group’s investing expertise in terms of asset management to our specialist capabilities in terms of flexible wealth structuring and wealth planning is a powerful and winning combination for our clients.’
Marnix van den Berge, Managing Director, Capital Group, added: ‘We are delighted to be appointed by Lombard International Assurance to grant access to our multi-asset portfolio strategies, which give individuals and families a simple way to invest toward their goals. With over four decades of experience managing multi-asset solutions, we’ve designed Capital Group EUR Portfolio Series as reliable and accessible multi-asset portfolios to help clients achieve their long-term investment goals. We believe combining Capital Group’s asset management expertise and research-led investment approach with Lombard International Assurance’s long-term approach to wealth and succession planning is particularly suited to today’s uncertain environment.’
