Since 1985, the Eric Sturdza Group focuses on its private banking activities under the lead of Banque Eric Sturdza. In 2009, a second private bank, Banque Pâris Bertrand Sturdza, was founded at the initiative of Eric Sturdza and three associates, Eric Sturdza being the principal shareholder. With the support of our Group, reference shareholder, and the dynamic activity of its co-founders, this bank swiftly increased its independence and we sold our share in 2018.
Evolution of the Group
The Eric Sturdza Group plans to maintain its entrepreneurial spirit, and continue to attract talents, conduct acquisitions in Switzerland and abroad, develop new partnerships with finance specialists with enterprising capacities, and the willingness to undertake in private banking or asset management for institutional and private customers.
Growth is equally being reached through Coges Corraterie Gestion SA, a company purchased by the Eric Sturdza Group, as evidenced by the acquisition of a local family office in June 2018, in order to allow independent asset managers to expand business, while sharing regulatory constraints within an entity supported by a banking group.
