    Lombard Odier, a global wealth and asset manager and leading private bank for entrepreneurs and their families, has entered into a long-term partnership with the Van Buuren Museum & Gardens Foundation in Brussels.

    Through this partnership, the Bank, represented by the Belgian office of Lombard Odier (Europe) SA, has joined with this key art deco heritage site to support the development of its activities. The collaboration will include the organisation of events, workshops, conferences, visits and special functions, as well as the sharing of networks.

    Geoffroy Vermeire,Managing Director of Lombard Odier in Belgium, commented: “We are very pleased to form this partnership between our Firm and the prestigious Van Buuren Museum & Gardens Foundation.

    “This is a major centre of European culture that is part of Belgian financial history, created by a banking benefactor and entrepreneur. The Foundation and Lombard Odier share strong, lasting values of excellence and a commitment to sustaining culture through philanthropic endeavours. We are also delighted that this partnership will allow us to provide exceptional and exclusive locations for our clients and the events and engagements that form a key part of our activity.”

    To mark upcoming anniversaries in 2024 and 2025, including 20 years of Lombard Odier’s presence in Belgium and 50 years of the museum’s existence, the Bank and the Foundation plan to combine their efforts and expertise to support a new phase in their development and benefit from their respective influence.

    Jacques Bedoret, Chairman of the Foundation’s board of trustees, observed: “Together and by sharing our respective networks, we want to defend our common values of excellence, preserving heritage and supporting art and culture.

    “Thanks to the support of Bank Lombard Odier, the Van Buuren Museum & Gardens will be able to pursue its efforts in developing and sharing its exceptional heritage, while helping to deepen our partner’s roots in Belgium.”

    The Van Buuren Museum & Gardens is a public utility foundation established in 1970. It is based in the former home of philanthropist banker David Van Buuren and his wife Alice. Built in 1928 and transformed into a museum in 1975, the house features architecture typical of the Amsterdam School. The interior, an art deco masterpiece, displays a unique collection of work by renowned Belgian, French and Dutch interior designers. The gardens, which are open to the public, form part of the well-known European Route of Historic Gardens, a cultural itinerary created by the Council of Europe to promote the cultural heritage of historic European gardens.
