A warm welcome
Dreyfus Söhne & Cie AG, Banquiers was founded in Basel in 1813 and is thus one of the oldest privately owned Swiss banks. The bank is currently managed by the sixth generation of the founding family and employs around 200 people, most of whom have been with the bank for many years. Bank Dreyfus is headquartered in Basel. It also has offices in Delémont, Lausanne, Lugano, Zurich and Tel Aviv.
With an equity ratio that is several times higher than the legal requirements, Dreyfus Banquiers ensures its autonomy and independence. In addition, this allows it to forego short-term profit maximisation. In order to maintain its independence, the bank deliberately refrains from investment banking.
Dreyfus Banquiers focuses on managing the assets of private and institutional clients. At the same time, the bank has a wealth of experience with family organisations, trusts and foundations.
The bank manages the assets entrusted to it according to the principles of long-term asset preservation and risk-controlled asset growth. All of the bank's services are tailored to the individual needs of each client. The focus of client relationships is on privacy, continuity and individual solutions.
Even in the case of management mandates, where our clients grant the bank extensive powers of attorney, the permanent dialogue with the client enables the realisation of individual wishes and investment goals.
It is not unusual for the relationship between bank and client to last several generations. Among the employees, the bank attaches great importance to a long-term working relationship. This means, among other things, that the same advisors are always available to their clients and thus a solid basis of trust can be built up.
Individually tailored asset management mandates are one of our core competencies. Based on a personal discussion and the joint definition of a risk profile, we create the starting point for the targeted investment of your assets primarily in direct investments. Collective investment products can also be used to cover special investment needs.
Our long-standing and experienced relationship managers are at your side as partners for your personal investment decisions. You benefit from access to the most modern and comprehensive information systems. We will be happy to prepare investment proposals according to your wishes. Our core service also includes a consolidated view of assets. This allows a detailed risk analysis, which may result in concrete measures.
