Lombard International Assurance, a specialist in wealth structuring solutions for high-net-worth individuals, has appointed Nicolas Demarest as Branch Manager. Based in Brussels, he will be responsible for sales and business development across the Belgian market.
At the end of 2016, Lombard International Assurance introduced a new solution to the Belgian market: a Belgian life insurance contract linked to a dedicated investment fund, for which Lombard International Assurance, as the first foreign company in Belgium, was granted a tax ruling from the Belgian tax authorities.
Demarest says: “The wealth management industry and its legal framework in Belgium has changed considerably over the past few years. We have enhanced our solutions to match our clients’ needs and we’re proud to be the first provider to offer life insurance solutions linked to internal dedicated funds of this kind in Belgium.”
Luca Bertacchi adds: “Our footprint in Belgium has grown significantly over the past 25 years. Lombard International Assurance has been successful in adapting to the changing environment, not only by leveraging our market knowledge and expertise, but also by launching a range of digital services. Connect, our new digital platform has now become an integral part of our offering in the Belgian market.”
