LOMBARD ODIER ENTERS STRATEGIC AGREEMENT WITH PHILIPPINES’ UNIONBANK

  • Alliance with the Philippines’ seventh-largest bank to grant onshore UnionBank clients access to Lombard Odier’s globally diversified, risk-based investment solutions
  • Agreement represents latest alliance with Asia financial institution to give Lombard Odier access to High Net Worth (HNW) clients in onshore markets across Asia
  • Lombard Odier to support UnionBank efforts to develop its private banking armthrough investment and wealth planning services

Global wealth and asset manager for private and institutional clients Lombard Odier has signed a strategic agreement with UnionBank to offer its unique investment solutions to onshore private clients in the Philippines in a move that further expands its footprint in Asia.

The agreement is the latest in a series of strategic alliances forged since 2012 that have enlarged Lombard Odier’s networks and client base in the Asia region, a key engine of growth for the independent Geneva-based firm.

Lombard Odier announced a similar partnership with Kasikornbank in Thailand in December 2014 following agreements with financial firms in mainland China, Japan, South Korea and Australia.

“Today’s agreement allows Lombard Odier to offer UnionBank’s onshore private clients in the Philippines access to best-in-class global investment solutions for the first time,” said Vincent Magnenat, Head of Private Banking Asia Pacific at Lombard Odier. “At the same time, Lombard Odier will assist UnionBank in developing its private banking activities focused on long-term global discretionary portfolio management solutions and in-house client support capabilities,” said Magnenat.

According to the terms of the agreement, Lombard Odier and UnionBank plan to launch a global and diversified multi-asset fund with a risk profile matching UnionBank’s specific needs for its high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth clients.

“We believe that our private banking clients in the Philippines will value access to a tailor-made investment offering developed by one of the world’s most financially solid wealth managers, which has a multi-generational investment horizon in mind,” said Eugene Acevedo, Senior Executive Vice President Retail Banking and Corporate Banking at UnionBank. “Our financial institutions will collaborate closely to ensure that UnionBank’s clients can grow and safeguard their wealth despite the highly volatile and low-growth global investment environment,” said Acevedo.
