The best wealth managers in Switzerland

Welcome to the Spear’s ranking of the best wealth managers for high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth individuals in Switzerland

Switzerland has an envied reputation as a world-leading wealth management and financial services hub.

The private banking scene is thriving too. One of the industry’s key banks, Edmond de Rothschild Group, plans ‘to double its assets under management’, president Ariane de Rothschild told the FT recently. Citi’s Geneva-based private banker, Laurence Mandrile-Aguirre, told Spear’s about the Swiss arm of the firm’s double-digit growth between 2020 and 2021.

Spear’s publishes annual rankings of the top private client advisers and service providers to HNWs and UHNWs. These are drawn up on the basis of peer nominations, client feedback, telephone and face-to-face interviews, data supplied by firms, as well as information gathered by the Spear’s editorial and research teams.
