Insights from Eduardo Leemann, CEO Falcon Private Bank
Read the insights from Eduardo Leemann, Chief Executive Officer and Head of International Private Banking at Falcon Private Bank – speaking at the Asian Wealth Management Forum 2013.
The interview covers his views on:
- The importance of growing via acquisitions – but a clear rebuttal of claims that Falcon has ever been involved in the process of bidding for BSI Bank.
- His aim to increase the significance of Asia as a percentage of the firm’s overall business – from 10% now to around 20%.
- Why the firm benefits from being on the Avaloq platform and from outsourcing its business processing and IT to a counterparty with experience and scale to solve problems relating to regulation, statements and other back-office needs and functions.
- How Switzerland can reinvent itself to stay ahead of Singapore and Hong Kong as the premier global wealth management centre.
