We prove that for every finitely generated subgroup G of a virtually connected Lie group which admits a finite-dimensional model for E¯G, the assembly map in algebraic K–theory is split injective. We also prove a similar statement for algebraic L–theory which, in particular, implies the generalized integral Novikov conjecture for such groups.
