Our values

As a German private bank, our name is synonymous with the seal of quality associated with “Made in Germany”:


Respect and cooperation are the driving forces behind our dealings with clients, business partners and colleagues. We think and trade in a market-oriented way. The way we do business is dictated by our partners’ requirements, needs and targets.


In times of constant change, we are hungry for knowledge and use new ideas as a basis for every innovation. We are open to new technologies and methods and use these to continually optimise our existing ones.


With our experience and competence, and by focusing on our partners’ needs, we are continually improving our processes, structures and technologies. With the high-quality framework in Germany’s financial centre, we offer continual outstanding performance.


We are clear about our goals and values. They determine how we think and what we do on a daily basis. Hence, we don’t take ourselves so seriously and put others first.


As our major asset, we adhere to laws and regulations and, what is more, do what is right for our clients. We are communicative, supportive and respecting feedback from our colleagues, clients and business partners.


We think just as much about the future as we do about the present moment. Our forward-looking attitude thus enables us to react quickly to changes to the status quo.
