Our values

We undertake to manage your assets responsibly

A commitment to you

This management will be set in the context of a privileged relationship with your own relationship manager. We also undertake to use all of the human and technical resources available to us to maintain and develop your wealth. While responsibility is the dominant value in our commercial philosophy, it cannot exist in isolation, it is therefore combined with all of our values namely: confidence, performance, listening, integrity and transparency.

Getting to know and understand you

In our interconnected world, the remit of the asset manager has been completely overhauled in terms of approach and sphere of activity. The qualities and knowledge that you can rightfully expect from y​our Private Bank are becoming ever more numerous and varied. Your relationship manager, supported by other experts, will use his or her skills to provide you with financial planning and to assist you in the structuring and transfer of your assets.

To design a garden, the broad outlines must first be traced. You must arrange the overall scheme, plant the varieties with a certain amount of logic; taking note of the flowering seasons to constantly benefit from the garden’s beauty, balance, structure, think about flows. Then you must maintain, prune, question, and dream of the garden in three, 10 years’ time - work which, in the end, is very close to what we do for our clients every day.

In our capacity as a Private Bank, we want to set standards in:

  • How we approach you, our client, and in our relationship with you. Our philosophy is based on strong values, which must be upheld at every stage and every level.
  • Our approach to teamwork, enabling you to benefit as much as possible from our network of international experts.
  • Our agility, as we demonstrate our ability to work within all of the limits specific to complex cross-border or international situations.
