Maerki Baumann - private bank - Zurich - Journal - July 2021


July 2021 - In this issue of our “Journal” we give you some insights into the rapidly evolving financial services industry – and into the structural change affecting private banking. What are the main drivers of this change? How does Maerki Baumann position itself as a private bank? And what are the implications for you as a client? It could be summed up like this: as a small, agile private bank, we are extremely well positioned when it comes to the digital transformation – an area in which the size of the company plays only a minor role. We focus on being ready to embrace innovation and, with our clients’ interests in mind, on shaping our own future as a business. And in doing so, we can look forward with optimism to what the future will bring.
