Giorgio Pradelli, CEO of EFG International

Entrepreneurial thinking.
Private banking.

At EFG, we take a hands-on approach to private banking – because we want to play a decisive role in the realization of your ideas. EFG has a history of entrepreneurship that dates back to when it was established. A former start-up, it has grown and developed into a global bank.

A key driver of this success is the fact that our Client Relationship Officers have always viewed themselves as entrepreneurs who are here to serve our clients. They are passionate about cultivating long-term relationships that are founded on trust and they offer hands-on solutions. This approach is one of the hallmarks of EFG and our understanding of private banking – making us a reliable partner to our clients.

Our approach

Can-do mentality

The can-do mentality that has shaped EFG ever since it was founded also reflects the philosophy that prevails in today’s world of private banking. Against a backdrop of rapidly evolving economic and market conditions, strategies and scenarios in wealth management need to be continuously reviewed and challenged. As a result, more and more clients consider it important to have a pragmatic and straightforward banking partner – here at EFG, we understand you.

We stay alert so that you stay on course

With our entrepreneurial spirit, we offer you a unique private banking experience. We carefully monitor developments as part of our role as a reliable partner. And we act decisively so that you remain on course to reach your long-term objectives.

Experience for every stage of life

The advice we offer you reflects our commitment to being your long-term private banking partner. Our Client Relationship Officers stay with EFG for a long time by industry standards. Our shared experience and the expertise we have gained over the years provide us with the necessary basis to support you successfully in all wealth-related matters through every stage of life – in a professional, personal and family context.
