A journey to self-transformation
October 23, 2015
The 13th edition of the Lombard International Assurance annual Private Wealth Seminar provided the backdrop for the launch of our global business and the first viewing of our new brand.
In the presence of Their Royal Highnesses the Hereditary Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Luxembourg, over 250 guests from across Luxembourg’s banking and finance sector gathered to listen to the evening’s two speakers: Pierre Gramegna, Luxembourg Finance Minister and current chair of Ecofin, and the event’s keynote speaker Ingrid Betancourt, former Colombian Senator and Political Activist.
Mr Gramegna spoke of complexity, self-transformation and risk-taking and the importance of seeing the big picture to help choose a strategy for success at an individual, company or country level. Madame Betancourt held the audience captive with her reminiscences of her time in the Colombian jungle and her ability to survive her ordeal, becoming stronger and more focused in the process.
The theme of transformation was echoed as we announced the launch of our global life insurance-based wealth solutions business, following the successful integration of Luxembourg-headquartered Lombard International Assurance with US-headquartered Philadelphia Financial. The new business, known as Lombard International, reinforces our position as global wealth solutions provider, serving the high and ultra-high net worth markets.
