Business Talk with CEOs of three Swiss private banks

Clarity on Swiss Private Banks

In an interesting panel discussion, our experts Philipp Rickert, Head of Financial Services, together with Christian Hintermann, Partner, Financial Services, grilled three representatives of Swiss private banks about the following topics:

  • Competitive pressure from neo-banks: How noticeable are these forces in the high-end segment?
  • The eight largest private banks manage 80% of all assets. Are size and growth key factors in an increasingly complex and regulated environment?
  • What were the most formative changes in the past and what trends will be important in private banking in the future?

Resilience in the storm

After an outstanding 2021 with record profits, many private banks were once again able to achieve good results in 2022 despite the unfavorable environment.

A strong increase in profit from the interest margin business compensated for the decline in both assets under management and the commission business in many cases.

A considerable rise in interest income compensated for the sharp decline in AuM and the commission business in many cases, leading to good results for many private banks despite the unfavorable conditions.
