Our history

Lombard International combines the strength and expertise of two specialist life insurance companies.
Both firms were well established in their field, providing wealth structuring solutions using private placement life insurance (PPLI) and private placement variable annuity (PPVA) products (commonly referred to unit-linked life insurance outside of U.S. markets) to High Net Worth Individuals, their families and institutions around the globe.
Having been in business for over 20 years, each company had proved themselves to be the market leaders in their niche sectors.
Blackstone acquired Lombard International Assurance S.A. and its affiliated operations in October 2014, and subsequently acquired Philadelphia Financial Life Assurance Company and its affiliates in July 2015.
Our new combined global group, branded as Lombard International, launched to market in September 2015. With head offices located in Luxembourg and Philadelphia, the combined global presence allows the firm to serve clients’ complex needs on a global basis whilst being sensitive to local cultures and attitudes.
