    Asia in focus: Lombard Odier's growth pillars and plans for the future

    A six-part video series on Lombard Odier’s presence and plans in Asia

    At Lombard Odier, we are guided by our “Rethink Everything” philosophy, constantly rethinking the world around us to provide a better investment perspective for our clients. As we look to the future, it is imperative that we stay focussed and disciplined in our value proposition, through our holistic investment and asset management approach, using our considerable family services expertise.

    Vincent Magnenat, Lombard Odier’s Limited Partner and Asia CEO, offers his view on Lombard Odier’s growth pillars in Asia, and on how he expects the business to evolve.

    Next Generations and their need for expert guidance

    In Asia, we have both mature markets – where wealth is largely held by old families, and emerging markets – which are comprised of mainly first or second generation family business owners and entrepreneurs holding their family’s wealth. These Next Generation (NextGen) entrepreneurs are not only looking to transmit the wealth that their families have built, but also to continue growing their wealth, and are  beginning to see the benefits of formalising family structures and putting solid family governance practices in place.

    …Next Generation entrepreneurs are not only looking to transmit the wealth that their families have built, but also to continue growing their wealth

    Lombard Odier, as a seventh generation family business, with rich experience in managing both family wealth and family businesses, is ideally positioned to guide clients through their family services’ needs, and to help them achieve their wealth management goals.

    Strategic Alliance ecosystem: providing global access in local markets

    Our recent survey of over 600 High Net-Worth Individuals (HNWIs) in Asia-Pacific, showed that HNWIs feel a greater need for guidance from banks in navigating their individual markets. The study also reflected their differing needs and demands within each market.

    This is where the strength of Lombard Odier’s Strategic Alliance model, where we partner with local financial institutions in the region, comes into its own. Through this Alliance. HNWIs can engage in private banking services with a well-reputed bank that they are familiar with, within their home market, and at the same time gain access to Lombard Odier’s global investment management platforms and family services expertise via the Strategic Alliance model.

    Sustainability remains our core conviction 

    At Lombard Odier, our core conviction in sustainability shapes everything we do. We believe that sustainable investing is the biggest investment opportunity of our lifetime, as the world moves away from a Wasteful, Idle, Lop-sided and Dirty (WILD) economy, and towards a Circular, Lean, Inclusive and Clean model. We call this the CLIC® economy.

    We have also uncovered, through the findings of our HNWI study and our interactions with the NextGen, that there is a strong correlation between age and interest in sustainability. The NextGen support sustainability and aspire to apply its principles, and their banking relationships depend on such shared values.
