“ Providing bespoke solutions that exceed expectations.”

At Arab Bank (Switzerland) Ltd., we set our clients as the focal point of our concerns and activities, placing greatest care and attention to their welfare. For each and every one of our customers, we strive to establish a long-lasting, unique relationship built on mutual trust and discretion.

Private Banking

Our Private Banking team strives to fulfill our clients needs and requirements by providing the right investment solutions through the spectrum of our investment services.

Based on an individual review, we assess our clients’ investment objectives, their attitude towards risk exposure and performance expectations, so as to define a suitable investment strategy. By adopting an “open architecture” approach to managing investments, we remain flexible in designing investment  portfolios for our clients and provide access to a wide range of in-house solutions as well as third-party “best-of-breed” investment products. Our investment policy is founded on four elements and outlines the key parameters and principles that guide the crafting and management of individual investment solutions.

Security

We prefer long-term capital appreciation to short-term speculative gains. Asset protection is a major investment target.

Diversification

The careful selection of investments that offer a favorable risk/return ratio is of fundamental importance. Arab Bank (Switzerland) Ltd. assigns particular priority to an international spread of risk, with special emphasis put on political and economic stability. In addition, considerable attention is devoted to establishing the right mix of currencies and securities.

Flexibility

Only a flexible investment strategy can be adequately responsive in today’s volatile financial markets. Accurate investment timing requires the ability to move and convert assets without delay or capital losses.

Market Liquidity

In structuring  a portfolio, it is essential that investment products are readily marketable and can be quickly exchanged in favor of other, more attractive investment opportunities.
