We aim to reinvent private banking.

Piguet Galland is a private bank specialising in holistic wealth management. We were founded in 1856, and our home market is French-speaking Switzerland. Our roots run deep in this region, and our business model is based on building close ties with our clients. This principle guides our day-to-day work as we strive to help you achieve your life goals.

You are the metric of our success.

You are the metric of our success.

Our industry-leading analysts and experts will look at every aspect of your financial situation. Our broad range of services is designed to meet the needs of three types of clients: private individuals, institutional investors and independent asset managers. We will spare no effort to help you achieve your objectives. A good starting point would be for us to meet in person at one of our offices, in Geneva, Nyon, Lausanne, Yverdon-les-Bains or Neuchâtel.

Meeting your expectations

Our focus on quality, reliability and results has enabled us to successfully serve generations of our clients. We will work closely with you, day after day, as you contemplate key decisions in your life, such as buying a home, how to build up your retirement savings and the best way to sell your company. And you, what do you expect from us?

Meeting your expectations
Made-to-measure service

Made-to-measure service

Our wealth managers do more than target high returns – they seek perfection. They do this by learning the ins and outs of your situation and assessing your particular needs, and by analysing all aspects of your wealth. Because they know the big picture, they will help you to make the right financial decisions and optimise your tax situation.
