‘As an Anglo-Saxon bank with its roots in sub-Saharan Africa, we are cognisant of the complexity of international clients with multiple touchpoints in different countries and jurisdictions,’ Investec Bank Switzerland’s CIO Annelise Peers tells Spear’s.

Peers describes the bank’s Swiss operation as ‘high-touch’. ‘Our integrated group approach to clients makes it easy for Investec to treat clients the same irrespective of jurisdiction,’ she adds.

This has been reinforced by the pandemic: ‘Clients still want the comfort of knowing what is happening to their investments and a sympathetic ear. This very personal and human interaction cannot be replaced by technology.’
