Mutual trust for successful partnershipWe have seen ourselves as a partner to our clients since our establishment. Our oldest client relationships, still going strong, date back to the beginning of the 19th Century. Our business was based, then, as now, on mutual trust. Back in the time when our bank was established, it took a great deal of trust to conduct business across large distances and without direct means of communication. Today, the ability to act swiftly while trusting a partner is a decisive competitive advantage with regard to private investment decisions and on global capital and commercial markets.
We never fail to earn the trust of our corporate clients because we remain constantly at their side with innovative, modern banking services. The independence of institutional influences, personal commitment of the owners, short lines of communication in decision-making, practised discretion and personal service are advantages which only an owner-managed private bank can offer.
By concentrating on our core competences in the business areas of private banking, asset management and investment banking, we are well able to cope with the constantly changing conditions in the financial sector and to provide innovative and superior products and services. Our clients additionally benefit from the experience and contacts we have gathered over more than two centuries.
