Lombard International Assurance appoints head of Latin America


Lombard International Assurance, a provider of wealth structuring solutions for high-net-worth individuals, has appointed Andreas Meier as the head of Latin America.

This appointment is the group’s ninth senior level hire since the global relaunch in September 2015.
In this newly created role, Meier, who will be based in Luxembourg, will report to Axel Hörger, CEO Europe and Ken Kilbane, executive vice president, head of global distribution.
Drawing on his 24 years of experience of working in the Latin American market, Meier will be responsible for the group’s business development for the region, combining the wealth structuring expertise and local knowledge of teams based in the US and Europe. 
Meier will be instrumental in growing new opportunities, both for the offshore market via key hubs in Miami and Switzerland, and in leading the sales and implementation strategy for the onshore market in the region.
Meier will take up his newly created role on 1 January 2017.
“I’m delighted to welcome Andreas to the team. His knowledge of the LatAm market will prove invaluable as we continue to expand our proposition in this region,” says Hörger. “The experience Andreas brings to the role will enable us to deliver best-in-class wealth structuring expertise that we have become synonymous with, not just for our Latin American clients but also for our clients globally.”
Meier joins Lombard International Assurance from UBS Deutschland, where he was head of wealth management for Latin America. As managing director and member of the management committee Germany and Austria, he was responsible for leading adviser-teams with clients from 14 Latin American countries across all client segments.
Meier has held previous senior positions at UBS Group, including head of Latin America Southern Cone, head of financial intermediaries and regional head of Northern Germany domestic.
“I am excited to be joining Lombard International Assurance and leading the LatAm team,” says Meier. “This is a growing market, which I know well, where high-net-worth individuals and their families are looking for wealth solutions to support them through a complex and ever changing world.”
