We are by your side, day after day, regardless of your situation, your profile or your appetite to risk…..and no matter where you are.

Our approach

A personalised service

Regardless of your personal or professional situation and your interests and projects, your demands will be unique. We will take these on board...

Our vocation is to mobilise our experts so that we can present you with a range of options and tailored advice. We can then find a tailored solution and proceed to turn it into reality.

  • Getting to know and understand you

    Our experience, stretching back more than 25 years, has exposed us to complex asset management situations worldwide. Understanding our clients means understanding what you want to do with your wealth and your wish to see growth in the things that you are responsible for. And because your situation can change over time, your contact person will regularly monitor your circumstances in order to maintain an overview of your wealth and to ensure that it is maintained or even transferred in line with your requirements. Understanding you, our client, means understanding the efforts and sacrifices that you have made. There are no limits on your requirements and your expectations as far as time and space are concerned.

  • Experts at your service

    Men and women by your side

    Your BIL Suisse relationship manager, accompanied by experts, will place his or her skills at your service.

    Your relationship manager speaks your language. They will be entirely familiar with your culture and your cultural references. They will invest time in getting to understand you, in getting to know your history, projects and investor profile.

    It goes without saying that your relationship manager will not be acting alone. An entire team of professionals will be placed at your disposal, able to respond to all of your needs. Your team will comprise:

    • Investment advisors,
    • Asset structuring and estate planning experts,
    • Product experts, and
    • Administrative assistants.

    These team members will help your relationship manager to analyse your situation, to define the best solutions and to implement these on your behalf.

  • Tailor-made services

    Tailor-made services in any circumstances

    One situation is not the same as another. That is why no solution is the same as another. We take the concept of personalisation as far as we possibly can. Your assets will be managed in line with your investor profile, employing a management strategy shared by all of our team.

    This effort to provide a tailor-made service, a high level of expertise combining flexibility and reactivity, and with a response that is fully adapted to your needs and aims, translates into a large number of different fields. We will provide you with products and services that match the context of your country of residence. You can rely on us adhering to the same philosophy of rigour and care that is applied to every client, regardless of your country of residence.

    Our proposals will take account of the analysis of your wealth, your return objectives, your investor profile and the availability and/or transferability of your assets. In this way, we can define the investment strategy and plan that suits you best.


The BIL Suisse offering is global in more ways than one

Our organisation has long been positioned with a view to meeting your needs. This applies regardless of whether you need us to support you as an individual, as part of a family or as an entrepreneur. We strive to appreciate your situation as a whole, including any problems, and to respond with as much flexibility as possible, integrating our financial with our non-financial offering.

We strive to appreciate your situation as a whole, including any problems, and to respond with as much flexibility as possible, integrating our financial with our non-financial offering.

We take account of the particular phase in which our clients find themselves:

  • Capital creation phase: generally, this corresponds to a period of professional activity, leaving you without the worry of managing your own financial portfolio.
  • Capital enjoyment phase: this corresponds to a phase when professional activity has ceased and you have a different ability to save, possibly even needing to consume capital. The time has come to rely on your accumulated assets but also to flesh out the detail of major projects, without forgetting to plan for the transfer of your wealth.

Quite simply, we support you


A partner at the service of professionals

Whether you are a professional expert (trust companies, law practices, fund administrators, consultants), a management company, an asset manager or a financial advisor, we will seek out solutions that enable you to optimise your development and we can help you to manage your clients, leaving you time to focus on actually developing your own business.

Automatic Exchange of Information

Tax transparency should be increased and cross-border tax evasion and should be prevented with the help of the global standard for the automatic exchange of information on financial accounts (AEOI). The global standard makes provision for the mutual exchange of information on financial accounts between states and territories that have agreed among themselves to the AEOI. Aside from Switzerland, over 100 states and territories, including all major financial centres, have declared their intention to adopt the standard.

The legal basis for the AEOI was approved by The Federal Assembly in December 2015. It entered into force on 1 January 2017.

Switzerland generally implements the AEOI on the basis of the Multilateral Competent Authority Agreement on the Automatic Exchange of Financial Account Information (MCAA). Bilateral treaties have been concluded with the EU, Hong Kong and Singapore as the basis for the AEOI.

To date, Switzerland has agreed to the AEOI with the following partner states.

Data Privacy Statement

Banque Internationale à Luxembourg (Suisse) SA (“Bank”) has issued a Data Privacy Statement in light of the Swiss Federal Act on Data Protection (“DPA”) and its upcoming revision as well as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), which is the new privacy regulation of the European Union (“EU”).

Although GDPR is a regulation of the EU, it is relevant for the Bank for a number of reasons. Swiss data protection legislation is historically closely tied to EU regulations and its future amendment will be substantially influenced by GDPR. Furthermore although GDPR is an EU regulation, under certain circumstances, it may apply to companies outside the EU such as the Bank (extraterritorial effect).

esisuisse deposit insurance

All banks operating in Switzerland must be licensed by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA). FINMA is a member of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and regulates and supervises all banks in Switzerland according to the Basel Committee's standards. These standards cover not only equity and capital adequacy but also the entire scope of prudential and behavioural rules. Swiss law demands capital adequacy standards that are even higher than those required by the Basel Capital Accord.

In particular, the Swiss Banking Act of 2005 stipulates that all Swiss branches of banks and securities firms must have certain deposits protected by esisuisse, a deposit insurance scheme that guarantees client money held with Swiss branches of banks and securities firms. If a bank or securities firm in Switzerland becomes insolvent, the other members of esisuisse will immediately provide the required funds. This collective scheme ensures that the clients of such an insolvent bank have their protected deposits paid out to them within one month. For this purpose, any bank and any securities firm in Switzerland is required to sign the “Self-regulation Agreement”, an agreement between esisuisse and its members. This agreement ensures that clients’ deposits are protected up to a maximum of CHF 100,000 per client. Medium-term notes held in the name of the bearer at the issuing bank are also considered deposits. Depositor protection in Switzerland is provided by esisuisse, and the depositor protection system is explained in detail at https://www.esisuisse.ch/en
