Top Recommended HNW Wealth Managers
Head of sales for Central and Eastern Europe, Tatyana Savchuk is one of the key figures for Citi’s International Personal Bank. The engaging Savchuk began as a relationship manager on the Russian desk and owes her position to her great skill at forging client relationships and wealth management solutions in the context of a large entity.
One relationship stands out: a client in his eighties who had held minimum balances on the account and was using only banking and deposit offerings came to Savchuk. She built a close rapport not just with the client but also with his son and grandson: a connection across three generations ensued, and Citi now provides corporate banking for the client’s companies.
She also notes a changing world: ‘The last 12 months and the political uncertainty arising from it have seen in-depth discussion surrounding our client portfolios,’ she says. ‘Our clients are mainly holding global stock and used the market volatility actively to rebalance portfolios.’
And the Trump presidency? ‘There was a lot of activity surrounding his election, but if you look at the market’s performance, it seems to have had a positive financial effect.’
