Jacob & Co. has joined forces with longstanding partners Billionaire and Insignia to design and launch the Billionaire Card. Membership to this rare breed among credit cards, tailored to fit the needs of ultra-high-net-worth individuals, is by invitation only and deliberately capped at a maximum of 150 clients to preserve the exclusivity and premium services offered.
Insignia is a comprehensive global luxury consultancy service, offering a bespoke 360-degree approach to customized services. These include 24/7 access to dedicated personal assistants and an in-house lifestyle team. It also offers a range of super-premium and premium payment cards, from exquisite jewellery-inspired designs to refined luxury metal finishes. Membership is by invitation only and is intentionally limited.
The Billionaire brand is a subsidiary of the Majestas Group, a leader in the luxury dining, hospitality and entertainment sector. The luxury holding company, which also manages the Cipriani and Cova brands, is 50% controlled by the entrepreneur Flavio Briatore and 50% by Primavera Investments, a company headed by the entrepreneur Francesco Costa.
The Billionaire Card, meticulously crafted from metal and lavishly gold-plated for a touch of opulence, offers a distinctive aesthetic. Like many of Jacob & Co.’s movements, it is open-worked and features a graphic, radiant pattern. The card presents a jewellery variant, adorned with a constellation of pavé diamonds.
The Billionaire Card allows unparalleled access to coveted experiences and events, personalized to each member’s interests. With strategic partner alliances that include Jacob & Co., Aston Martin, Riva, Spring and Ginori 1735, cardholders can revel in privileged entry to concerts, fashion shows, and international sporting events. These include the Super Bowl, the F1 Paddock Club Privé, Oscar night, Coachella in California, Burning Man in Nevada, New York Fashion Week, Vogue’s Fashion Forces, Highsnobiety’s private gatherings, and more.
Billionaire card members will enjoy an array of benefits with Insignia, including a dedicated 24/7 personal assistant, Insignia Jets’ instant booking app, which offers priority access to aircrafts and special pricing, coveted VIP entry to exclusive events, a treasure trove of enticing perks. Additionally, cardholders can benefit from preferential rates through the Luxury Hotel Collection, including premium travel insurance, and access to a bespoke luxury loyalty program, among other resplendent, exclusive, and premium services.
The Billionaire card also gives clients direct and privileged access to all Majestas exclusive events and venues such as Billionaire (Dubai, Monte-Carlo, Porto Cervo, Doha, Riyadh), Twiga (Monte-Carlo, London, Doha and Forte Dei Marmi) and once a year, a special invitation to a holiday at the Billionaire Resort & Retreat, in Malindi.
The Billionaire Card will be formally launched with a prestigious event at the Billionaire venue in Dubai in November 2023, coinciding with the Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix.
