Personal Investment Bank is unique because we have made investment banking services available to high net worth individuals.
Our main goal is to give such clients access to the full range of BCS Global Markets’ investment banking services – previously, only available to institutional clients.
This means that we will offer customized products to each client, individually tailored to his or her risk profile, life plans and financial needs.
We are an investment bank for sophisticated private investors!
Together with offering new services, strengthening the sales team is a logical step in such business development.
Professionals with many years of investment banking experience have joined us.
We plan to actively develop relations with private clients, relying on the expertise and experience of our new team and the unique opportunities offered by BCS Global Markets’ investment bank.
