The Wealth Preservation Life Cover offers protection against sudden unfavourable market conditions, the company said.
It combines Lombard’s unit-linked life insurance solution with a variable additional death cover, to be automatically implemented, when the net value of a client’s wealth embedded in a unit-linked solution is affected by negative capital market performance.
It does not bear any rolling or upfront charges.
“The Wealth Preservation Life Cover is a great solution for clients who want to avoid their financial assets being exposed to typical investment risks like uncontrollable downturns of global capital markets,” Andreas Meier, head of Latin America, said.
“It is an ex-post hedge of the policy surrender value at a fraction of the typical costs for financial hedging strategies, eg when using options and other financial derivatives.”
Pablo Peciña, senior wealth planner, added: “The Wealth Preservation Life Cover is a feature that upholds succession planning by ensuring that, at least, the premium paid into the policy is passed on to the beneficiaries in the event of death.
“Should the policy value fall below the paid premium, the life policy will automatically include an extra mortality cover to compensate the shortfall. Latin American clients who upgrade our recognised unit-linked life insurance solutions with a Wealth Preservation Life Cover will enjoy a greater degree of protection.”
Lombard International Assurance has previously launched its Wealth Preservation Life Cover in Italy and Spain.
