Banque Eric Sturdza is entirely devoted to serving private clients. We provide a safe environment for our clients’ assets over the long term, through three important pillars of our investment philosophy.
First, we avoid all forms of investment banking, retail banking and commercial lending.
This keeps our client’s assets safe from credit and other balance sheet risks.
Second, we balance two crucial perspectives in all our investment decisions.
We seek to understand the evolution of the world economy and its impact on financial markets — tempering this with insight into the psychology of markets. This approach allows us to focus on the horizon, while navigating short-term turbulences on the markets. It also keeps our client’s assets safe from speculation.
Third, we focus on liquid investments such as funds, currencies and other instruments.
This allows us to respond quickly to ever-evolving circumstances on financial markets. Maintaining fluidity in our client’s assets is yet another way that Banque Eric Sturdza has been able to safeguard the wealth of our clients, particularly in times of market turmoil.
We start all new banking relationships with a detailed understanding of our clients goals, plans and risk tolerance, and then translate these into bespoke investment strategies. One of the distinguishing characteristics of our bank is our ability to deliver on strategies that match clients’ expectations over time.
At Banque Eric Sturdza, we attribute a large part of our success to a combination of two things: people and place. We attract exceptional talent from around the world and offer the kind of working environment that allows great people to thrive. One of the key features of our bank is its “flat” management-by-association structure, which encourages individual responsibility while also promoting cooperation.
Our team of private bankers form the pillar of our organisation, acting as custodians of our clients’ assets. They are supported by the finest portfolio managers, investment specialists, economists and researchers — each contributing their own technical expertise to a bank that is inherently structured for performance.
Banque Eric Sturdza uses a wide choice of investment funds. This allows the bank to maintain independence at all times in our investment choices, while giving our clients access to top performing funds.
