set up in 1992, iwi is a Luxembourgbased company that specialises in solid wealth insurance solutions for an international market of high net worth individuals. iwi is particularly focused on Luxembourg, switzerland, France, Belgium, italy and the united kingdom.

Following a clear vision, Rasschaert is keen to continue to improve the company. he comments: “we are currently working hard to improve our internal efficiency, in particular by adopting improved processes in combination with efficient it solutions for a smoother operation. Furthermore, we want to grow externally and are constantly looking at new opportunities around the world that suit our profile. and finally we will continue our personal focus on the

customer. at iwi we make sure this is something tangible.” a close relationship with customers is certainly something Rasschaert holds in high regard, as he meets many clients on a regular basis. “i didn’t expect these to be such rich encounters. while these meetings can be demanding, our clients invariably have lively personalities and a lot of experience behind them,” he says. apart from good customer relationships, giving confidence in their services is also key for iwi. “it is our commitment to design the best solutions within the framework of a wealth planning structure, considering personal requirements and technical constraints.”
