Lombard International Group, a global leader in insurance-based wealth structuring solutions for high net worth individuals, families and institutions, today announces FCA approval of its newly established UK financial intermediary. This enables the business to continue operating in the UK in any Brexit outcome scenario, and reinforces Lombard International Group’s ongoing commitment to serving its UK clients and partners.
The FCA regulated UK entity will be led by Rob MacIntyre, Managing Director of LIA Wealth Advisers and Director of Wealth Structuring Solutions. His wealth management team of experts will work closely with Lombard International Group’s UK partners to ensure seamless continuation of services and solutions for their clients at a time of political uncertainty.
Axel Hörger, Europe CEO said: “The UK has historically been and will continue to be a key market for Lombard International Group. It was essential for us to obtain an FCA license to continue operating in the UK regardless of the outcome of Brexit, and to continue providing the level of service excellence our partners and clients have come to expect without any disruption. I am delighted that our plans for Brexit are so well advanced!”
Rob MacIntyre explained: “At Lombard International Group we work closely with many partners serving both domiciled and non-domiciled UK residents. By establishing a UK registered business, we are ensuring that they, and all clients, can have the confidence that we can continue to serve them well, offering estate, wealth and succession planning solutions that will not be impacted by the outcome of Brexit.”
