Swiss private bank Mirabaud celebrates its bicentenary this year, but it’s not content to rest on its laurels. It now has a network of 15 offices across ten countries, bolstered by new outposts in Montevideo and São Paulo. An office in Abu Dhabi is expected to open soon and will sit alongside an existing office in Dubai.

Swiss private bank Mirabaud celebrates its bicentenary this year, but it’s not content to rest on its laurels. It now has a network of 15 offices across ten countries, bolstered by new outposts in Montevideo and São Paulo. An office in Abu Dhabi is expected to open soon and will sit alongside an existing office in Dubai.

Mirabaud has had a presence in the UK for more than a quarter of a century, but it underscored its belief in London as a financial hub by opening a UK banking branch in 2018. Etienne d’Arenberg, its UK head of market, indicates that the philosophy of investing in the bank’s people – evinced by the recruitment of ‘high-calibre’ staff from Barclays and Banque Havilland last year – will continue.

He adds, however, that another key pillar of Mirabaud’s recent success has been ‘new technology alliances on its platform’. D’Arenberg adds that balanced portfolios ‘outperformed their respective ARC PCI indices in CHF, EUR and GBP in 2018 and are in line for 2019’.

He also shares with us his asset allocations – 25 per cent in cash, 50 per cent in fixed income, and 25 per cent in equities. He adds: ‘We hold approximately 6 per cent in emerging markets and do not hold any real estate, as clients use us to manage only the most liquid portion of their assets.’
