The Company achieved a Net Result1 of EUR 47.1 million (-5.8%). Assets under management totalled EUR 29.2 billion, down 8.3% notably as a result of adverse developments in financial markets.

Wealth Management

Cardif Lux Vie’s Wealth Management business generated EUR 2.6 billion in turnover,69% of which in units of account. This year was characterised by a dynamic marketing effort supported by concrete action on the digitalisation front, with the delivery of fully virtual processes for France and Belgium. Business was also driven by the following developments in units of account: expanded distribution of the Specialised Insurance Fund, inclusion of Private Equity funds in the offering (Internal Dedicated Funds investment strategy, creation of thematic Internal Collective Funds and referencing in the catalogues of External Funds). In terms of distribution, we provided our partners with individual support by, inter alia, speeding up the provision of labelled Internal Dedicated Funds annexes or setting up of regular operational monitoring committees. This forms the basis of what is a solid and ambitious development strategy for the years ahead. Lastly, the Company complies with new regulatory obligations on sustainable finance (IDD2, SFDR) and has positioned itself as a facilitator for the integration of its partners’ ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) strategies..

Local Market

Business in the Luxembourg residents and Greater Luxembourg Region retail clients market totalled EUR 100.5 million. Inflows from Investment Savings rose by 34%, with Retirement Savings totalling EUR 12 million and Planned Savings remaining stable. Another highlight of the year was on 29 September 2022, when Cardif Lux Vie obtained the LuxFLAG ESG Insurance Product certification for its OptiPension+ and MyPension+ policies, making it the first insurer to be awarded this label for a pension savings product (under article 111bis of the Luxembourg law on income tax). As regards distribution, business generated via brokerage networks grew by 25% while collaboration with the BGL BNP Paribas network was further strengthened. Ongoing digitalisation of the Cardif Lux Vie platform, as well as the delivery of a fully virtual outstanding balance insurance (ASRD) process will enable the Company to continue gaining market share and develop new partnership-based opportunities.
“These solid annual results support our development strategy. We are now going to step up our transformation by prioritising the industrialisation of our businesses. Committed, now more than ever, to our partnership culture, we will further increase our initiatives and position ourselves as a facilitator of growth. I believe that our collective intelligence, know-how, commitment to a more responsible economy and the solidity of our Group are all strengths that allow us to look to the future with confidence. I would like to thank the Cardif Lux Vie teams for their commitment, as well as our clients and partners, who are increasingly placing their trust in us,” commented Alexandre Draznieks, CEO of Cardif Lux Vie.
