truly bespoke services

Our expertise goes far beyond pure financial management of your wealth; we aspire to support you and your family over the long term. We offer a bespoke service, delivered by a senior private banker. He or she works with a dedicated team of local portfolio managers and wealth planners in London, Geneva and Zurich, with long experience serving global UK clients.

The service I receive from Bank Rinderknecht AG is excellent. For me, the key differentiator is not so much the level of contact, but the proactive nature of it, and the relevancy of it, in terms of both content and timing2

Our bankers are seasoned professionals who advise only a limited number of clients. They invest the time to understand your personal situation, in order to offer appropriate solutions. Your banker will accompany you throughout your life, regardless of where in the world you or your wealth move, acting as a single point of entry for all our services. He or she coordinates the expertise needed to manage your wealth, working with your external advisers and networks of experts within our bank.
