Lombard International appoints John Fischer as EVP, Head of Distribution


Lombard International, a leader in wealth-structuring solutions for the institutional and high net worth markets, has appointed John Fischer to the new role of Executive Vice President, Head of Distribution for its US business.

Fischer (pictured), who will report to Michael Gordon, CEO of Lombard International US, will be responsible for business development and continuing the expansion of Lombard International’s US footprint and internationally sourced Group Variable Annuity (GVAs) investments in US assets. He will lead the US sales and distribution teams, which focus on three main channels: independent agents, financial intermediaries and institutional investment managers.
Fischer has been actively engaged in developing strategic insurance solutions for over 25 years and has managed a number of business units within Lombard International that have been instrumental in its growth and development. An expert and thought leader in the industry, Fischer is frequently invited to join panels at major investment conferences to talk about the essential role that strategic insurance solutions can play in tax planning. Most recently he has engaged with single and multi-family office clients while serving as a key relationship manager for some of Lombard International’s key institutional strategic accounts internationally.  
Gordon says: “I am delighted that John will be a part of my leadership team and will lead US sales and internationally sourced GVA business development. He has deep roots within the firm, understands the business and our partners extremely well, and has a proven track record of delivering results. He brings great vision and wisdom to this new role, and will help drive our company forward as we continue to grow our business.”
Fischer says: “I look forward to leading the US sales and distribution teams and am excited for this new opportunity. Our company has an extremely talented team and industry-leading products, which position us well for success. Following a record year of growth, we will continue to expand Lombard International’s US and global footprint by delivering innovative investment solutions to our clients.”
