Wealth Management Switzerland Study (115 Portfolios On The Test Bench)

Why 71% of Swiss investment firms underperform (including banks) instead of creating the results you deserve. Discover 17 tips you must know BEFORE investing money.

Case studies show that most investors discover their wrong investments ONLY AFTER having suffered substantial losses with their portfolio. The wrong choice of the bank and wealth manager is the main reason for substantial losses. Learn from the mistakes of others.

Thanks to my connections as the former CEO of the Swiss Association of Wealth Managers ( I got access to very confidential information. I analysed 115 existing portfolios based on a track record of 10 years. The 115 portfolios are managed directly by a Swiss bank or an external asset manager Switzerland.

The results of my studies will surprise you.

The 3rd generation destroys 90% of all family assets over USD 5 million

Studies show that 70% of all very wealthy families have already destroyed their wealth in the second generation. The grandchildren take care of the rest. In the 3rd generation, just 10% of inherited family wealth still exists.

Why is that so? Why is the next generation not prepared for the succession?

  • 78% of millionaires do not expect their children to handle money responsibly.
  • Handling money makes their children work-shy and lazy.
  • 64% have never talked to their children about the family fortune.

The misconception that “you don’t talk about money” has fatal consequences. This view leads to the total loss of family assets.

Most rich heirs do not get access to the money as long the Principle is alive.

Studies show that it only takes 19 days on average for heirs to buy their first Ferrari or Lamborghini from the money they have just received (example: study by Williams Group Wealth Consultancy).

Children need to learn how to handle money as early as possible. That’s why good Swiss bankers always make sure that their clients’ children take part in wealth management discussions as early as possible.

If you want to prevent your hard-earned assets from vanishing into thin air in the hands of your children and grandchildren in no time at all, then read our articles on Single Family Office, Multi-Family Office, Family Office Services and much more. As former CEO of the Swiss Association of Asset Managers, I had an insight into the day-to-day business of family offices. The most important topics can be found in the table of contents.

Educate yourself further on wealth accumulation and asset protection by reading our articles in the “Family Office” section. Talk about it with your children. Discuss questions about family wealth within the family. Your children will be grateful.

I guarantee you an exciting read.

Swiss Private Bank Directory

Swiss Private Banks - Swiss Private Banking

We remarked that the international private clientele is very unsure about the choice of private banks. Easy to understand comparison parameters to find the best and safest Swiss banks are not easily accessible.

How do you find the right bank for your individual needs and expectations from 283 banks? By comparing and confronting all the annual reports? Not all banks are publishing the annual report. Sometimes, the high level of confidentiality and discretion turns into an obsession in Switzerland. This has led us to launch the world’s first Swiss Private Bank Directory. This gives you an easily accessible comparison of all Swiss private banks. Nothing comparable exists until today.

We provide facts and figures based on the latest annual report. We have summarized only the most important key figures for you so that you can gain a quick and easy overview allowing the comparison of specific banks. As experts, we also help you to fine-tune your bank selection. We will network you with the right people of a specific private bank.

With our introduction, you can be sure that your wealth will not vanish because of adventures with high-risk investments. We will make sure that you will only be looked after by the best senior top private banker. Due to a large number of private banks, independent advice is paramount.

Remember: Great choices are born of good advice.

As an Ex-UBS tax attorney and former CEO of the Association of Swiss Asset Managers (SAAM) I have the capacity to deliver a competent and independent advice to ensure that you can keep your money in safe hands over the long term. That’s what I stand for by my name.

Habe Herrn Caputo, als zuverlässigen, Kompetenten und aufrechten Geschäftsmann kennen gelernt. Weiter so !!!
I miei genitori avevano un conto in Svizzera. L' avvocato Caputo ha accompagnato le complesse procedure di diritto internazionale. Ha condotto le trattative con la banca svizzera. Non dare mandato a Caputo per problemi con banche svizzere é un errore grave. Posso solo raccomandare lo studio Caputo & Partners di Zurigo.

Coming to Switzerland and dealing with the local banks as a foreigner is a challenging task. However, if you are equipped with a proper advice the task is certainly doable. If you are solely dealing with the Swiss banking system and frustrated, look no further – call Alex or Enzo. What I personally like about this firm is that it is a one stop shop. What I mean by that? Alex and Enzo provide a sound advice not only on legal issues you may have but also, they are well seasoned bankers and trained as tax advisors. All the common issues could be resolved in one office, I did not need to go to multiple firms, everything covered in house. By the way, your coffee shop suggestion made my day. Well brewed and tasty coffee. Thanks Alex and Enzo!

Who is behind the international business law firm Caputo & Partners
and what makes the boutique law firm in Zurich so unique?

After a successful career in the Swiss Private Banking Industry (UBS, Credit Agricole) as an international Tax Attorney, Compliance Officer, Advisor for UHNWI (Ultra High Net Worth Individuals) and CEO of the Swiss Association of Asset Managers Enzo Caputo founded Caputo & Partners AG in 2006.

Enzo Caputo, during his many years as a bank and tax attorney, recognized that the big law firms employ lawyers who have never worked in a bank. The expertise of salaried lawyers is largely based on theoretical knowledge from universities and courts.

The lack of practice in the bank meant that communication with the bank was unnecessarily complicated and degenerated into a paper war with the legal department of the bank. The result for the client ends in astronomical costs with unnecessary loss of time, incalculable consequential damage or the total loss of the wealth of the client.

Then, Enzo Caputo had the vision to build up an international team of experts with many years of precious professional experience accumulated with Swiss private banks.

Take immediate benefit from the professional banking experience of our experts. Let our boutique law firm Caputo & Partners eliminate all your financial problems and achieve exclusive results.

“Choosing a large law or audit company does not guarantee a 100% watertight tax optimization without mistakes. The case with football star Cristiano Ronaldo and Formula 1 Pilot Lewis Hamilton in the media are proof that it does not depend on the size of the consultant company, because in the end, the customer will be held responsible for the mistakes of the consultants at court.”

Don’t be naïve and relay on the supposedly save advice of your banker at home. Your domestic banking system at home is exposed to many hidden risks.

The Bail-In legislation in your home-country will save the domestic banks from bankruptcy by taking your private money away to save your bank at home. Protect your money and not the bank.

Do you have a tax neutral and secret bank account in Switzerland? Did you inherit an account and you do not know if the funds are taxed? Owning black money is no trivial offence anymore. Blocked accounts, heavy fines or even jail are the consequences. You need appropriate tax help for issues with tax evasion.

Doing nothing is a fatal mistake. You are at risk of being treated like a criminal. Your Swiss banker is no longer your friend and helper. He will turn away from you. The Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) will report your private account information to the tax authority at your place of residence. The first Automatic Exchange of Information (AEOI) will be carried out by the Swiss banks as early as September 2018. Legalize your money as soon as possible with an international tax attorney.

A Frozen Bank Account usually comes as a surprise out of the blue. The account holder makes a payment instruction but the bank will not execute the payment without informing the client. The account holder turns to the bank asking for help. But he gets no help from the bank; rather, he is handled with flimsy explanations or even lies. Do not expect any help from the bank. Do not make any statements to the bank that you might regret later. It can backfire. Everything you now tell the bank is recorded and can later be used against you.

Now you need professional tax help. We will make the necessary clarifications for you and immediately find out what’s going on. We start a couple of phone calls with the right people. We estimate your situation with the account on the very same day of your initial contact with us. We will put together all the necessary documents and prepare your defence.

Look closely at the old transactions in the inherited bank account history. Many of my clients have found more hidden assets. It is worth it. Believe me. I speak from experience. In many cases, the bank records contain indications leading to unknown bank accounts at other banks or even abroad in another offshore location.

Often the inherited bank accounts are not taxed. In many cases, the heirs must realize that they have inherited not only a Swiss bank account but also tax problems. Watch out and look to professional tax help. Do not be criminalized. Before you inherit any untaxed funds, make sure that the bank account is legalized as soon as possible.

We help you to legalize the inherited bank account with your tax authority at home.

The golden days when banks invited their customers to exclusive dinners and nightclub visits are long gone.
