PRESS RELEASE | LEONTEQ ANNOUNCES NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH BANQUE INTERNATIONALE À LUXEMBOURG
Zurich, 30 July 2020
Leonteq AG (SIX: LEON) announced today that it has entered into a new partnership with Banque Internationale à Luxembourg for the manufacturing and distribution of structured investment products.
Leonteq and Banque Internationale à Luxembourg SA (BIL) have initiated a partnership for the issuance and distribution of structured investment products. BIL will join Leonteq's technology platform for fully white-labelled issuers and leverage Leonteq's expertise to create and distribute structured products. As part of their cooperation, Leonteq will provide BIL with a broad range of services along the entire value chain, including distribution, product structuring and issuance.
In this context, BIL will be responsible for the distribution of its structured investment products to its own clients, while Leonteq has received an international distribution mandate giving BIL access to a broad base of qualified investors across Europe and Asia. The first BIL structured investment products are expected to be available on Leonteq's platform in the second half of 2020.
Marcel Leyers, CEO of Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, said: "The collaboration with Leonteq allows us to provide our own structured products in a highly automated and efficient manner, which will substantially improve our client value proposition. Leonteq's large distribution network will also help us to extend our reach and further strengthen the BIL brand recognition in key markets globally."
Lukas Ruflin, CEO of Leonteq, stated: "We are excited to partner with Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, a key player in the Luxembourg financial market and a reputable name internationally. The cooperation will provide our clients exposure to a distinct range of structured investment products issued under the Swiss and European Prospectuses."
