Journal - Maerki Baumann - Private bank - Zurich - May 2022

Journal

May 2022 - 90 years of active entrepreneurship: This is Maerki Baumann’s story in a nutshell. It begins with the drive and vigour of the founder Friedrich Maerki and extends to the strategic foresight demonstrated by the siblings Hans G. Syz-Witmer and Dr Carole Schmied-Syz. As shareholders and in their roles as Chairman and Vice-Chairwoman of the Board of Directors, they have been devoted to ensuring the independence and successful further development of our private bank for more than 20 years. Did you know that Switzerland’s first female bank director worked at Maerki Baumann? Or that our bank was a pioneer in establishing the first independent transaction bank in Switzerland? You can find these and other facts as well as anecdotes in our latest edition of “Journal”.

December 2021 - The Tonhalle Zurich is just a few minutes’ walk from our company headquarters in central Zurich, not far from the lake. Steeped in tradition, this renowned concert hall is now resplendent again following its extensive renovation. This is also a cause for celebration for us, as the owners of our private bank, Hans G. Syz-Witmer and Carole Schmied-Syz, the Chairman and Vice-Chairwoman of the Board of Directors of Maerki Baumann & Co. AG, have been committed to this music venue for decades. Hans G. Syz-Witmer played a leading role in the procurement of the new Tonhalle organ. You can learn more about his efforts in the latest edition of the Journal.

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.
