Dubai, UAE, November 2, 2017: Lombard Odier, global wealth and asset manager for private and institutional clients, is pleased to celebrate 30 years in Asia as it continues to grow its business in the region.
Lombard Odier first established its Asian presence in 1987, to fulfil the investment goals of global clients. With offices in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, today it manages private client and institutional wealth while offering solutions for global wealth planning.
Patrick Odier, Senior Managing Partner of Lombard Odier Group, said: “Over the past 30 years Lombard Odier has navigated a generational shift in attitude towards wealth preservation and protection among the region's wealthiest families. Asia is a crucial growth market for our private banking, investment management and family services businesses and we continue to see great interest across the region in the fresh perspectives we offer and the distinctive investment solutions we design to create lasting value. To navigate the next thirty years in Asia I believe we must stand for a differentiated viewpoint and approach, stand above the crowd and continue to innovate as we draw on our core strengths to invest and protect our client's assets.”
Vincent Magnenat, Chief Executive Officer, Asia Pacific, said “We are delighted to celebrate our 30th anniversary in Asia by rethinking the future, in Singapore, a nation that has blazed trails in terms of innovation. As Asia's wealth continues to grow, we are seeing a very clear upward trajectory in the demand and appetite for tailored wealth management and family office services for both private clients and sophisticated institutional investors.”
Lombard Odier has seen steady growth in Asia through the pursuit of three core pillars which underpin its business in the region; managing global wealth through its business hubs in Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo; partnerships with regional private banks; and family services and related wealth planning services. Today Lombard Odier is also a go-to discretionary investment manager for private clients seeking its sophisticated risk-based approach.
Lombard Odier has forged a number of strategic partnerships with financial institutions in Asia Pacific, providing the clients of those organisations onshore access to Lombard Odier's investment expertise and tailored multi-asset funds based on the firm's unique risk-based investment approach.
Looking to the future Lombard Odier will continue to enter new markets in APAC by leveraging local partners' networks and insights, while at the same time enabling its local partners to provide their clients with the same quality of products and services that Lombard Odier offers its own clients across the globe.
