VP Bank (Switzerland) Ltd celebrates its 30th anniversary
VP Bank has always valued qualitative growth. Within the context of the Liechtenstein-based bank’s international expansion, VPB Finanz AG was founded in Zurich on 30 November 1988 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of VP Bank. The Zurich-based Hügi Bank Ltd was subsequently acquired in 1998, following which VPB Finanz AG was converted into the fully-licensed VP Bank (Switzerland) Ltd.
Successful business model
VP Bank (Switzerland) AG supports its clients in the two "Private Banking" and "Intermediaries" divisions. The two divisions offer a wide range of services and have a targeted growth remit with a particu-lar focus on the Swiss, German and Russian markets.
VP Bank (Switzerland) Ltd works closely together with the parent company in Liechtenstein in all fields. This means clients profit from Group-wide know-how and, thanks to efficiencies of scale, from fair terms and conditions. VP Bank has flat hierarchies – decisions are taken efficiently.
Digital services combined with personal advice
The success model of a thriving private bank constitutes a skilful combination of digital services with personal and expert advice. This is where VP Bank deploys experienced client advisors. The Zurich site has an important role to play in this conjunction, for it currently offers very attractive recruitment op-portunities. VP Bank (Switzerland) Ltd secured a number of additional qualified client advisors last year.
Space to grow: In the spring of 2018 the Bank moved into new premises at Talstrasse 59, where today some 90 members of staff (status: 30 June 2018) are employed. The new, independent and repre-sentative six-storey building offers 1,500 m2 of office space, an impressively-designed client zone, con-temporary workplaces with state-of-the-art infrastructure and a central location.
What began in 1988 with two employees is being successfully continued. VP Bank (Switzerland) Ltd will be celebrating its anniversary at a gala event on 29 November 2018.
