The trend remains positive. The J. Safra Sarasin group, which specializes in wealth management, published annual results on Thursday, emphasizing “its solidity”. The financial institution appointed Jürg Haller chairman of the board last October. In an interview with Time, the new president says the trend remains “positive” for what he calls “the world’s largest family-owned private bank”.
Assets under management reach 185.8 billion francs and the group employs 2,178 people (up from 27 last year), including 1,150 in Switzerland (+2). Jürg Haller added that the establishment benefits from its “solidity in a consolidating market” and that “the skills available are capable of generating sustainable growth, organic or through acquisitions, while maintaining a prudent risk profile”.
