With offices in Geneva, Lugano, Zurich and now Dubai, the Bank manages around CHF 5 billion in assets.
ONE’s commitment to the region echoes the bank’s strategy to expand its international presence and access fast-growing markets. It also reflects its confidence in the region’s economic growth and stability, and in the future of the UAE as a regional and international centre of economic prosperity and business opportunities as Grégoire Pennone, ONE swiss bank’s CEO explains: “This local presence brings us closer to our clients in terms of geographical and cultural proximity and help us to provide them with bespoke investment solutions. We are one of the few Swiss private banks that offer in-depth knowhow in the regional fixed income and equity market and provide direct access to the UAE stock market and new public offerings in the region with Lombard lending facilities.”
Yann Mrazek, Chairman of the Board of Directors of OSPW & Managing Partner at M/HQ adds: “We see a clear similarity in the values that define the Swiss and Dubai financial industries: excellence, stability, discretion and professionalism, to name but a few. Driven by the same values and the desire to achieve a harmonious balance between tradition and innovation, ONE works tirelessly to offer a new experience in private banking.”
