Expansion Serves as Gateway to LatAm High Net Worth Community
Lombard International, a global leader in wealth structuring solutions for the high net worth market, today announced the opening of its office in Miami, FL, located at 801 Brickell Avenue. The new office will be a hub for Lombard International’s sales team to reach high net worth individuals, families and institutions in Latin America.
“The Miami office serves as a gateway for us to engage with and educate advisors of the Latin American high net worth community,” said Helmer Arizmendy, Senior Managing Director and Latin America Region Head for Lombard International. “With this new expansion, we look forward to raising awareness of our solutions available to help protect and preserve wealth.”
This office opening comes shortly after Lombard International’s expansion into Bermuda with the appointment of Phil Trussell as Senior Managing Director to lead the growth of its life insurance operations in the region. In addition, earlier this year Lombard International opened a representative office in Paris and two brokerage offices in Asia, expanding the firm’s global footprint into other key financial markets.
“As the number of ultra-high net worth individuals and families continues to grow, Latin America is a key market for Lombard International,” said Ken Kilbane, Executive Vice President and Head of Global Distribution at Lombard International. “The opening of this new office further cements our position as a global leader in wealth structuring solutions for the high net worth market.”
