Banca Zarattini increased its net profit from 1.093 million CHF in 2016 to 1.784 million CHF in 2017. This is mainly due to higher commission income and lower tax costs.
The best performance in 2017 was achieved in the equity management lines. The assets under management also grew in 2017 by 410 million CHF to 2.404 billion CHF. The asset management strategies produced positive results on average, but they did not beat their indices because the approach taken in the second half of the year was too conservative.

We are a fully independent boutique law firm. That’s why we don’t have any cooperation agreements with the banks.
Few banks do not disclose their Annual Reports to the public. Therefore, we collected reliable information on a best-efforts basis. We renounced to collecting information from unreliable sources. Until today, Swiss law does not impose the duty of publication to the banks as it is the case in the EU. Therefore, for a few banks, the information from the annual reports was not summarized and published.
There are some smaller banks without a rating. It makes no sense for them to apply for a rating because they are not involved in the lending business. If the bank has no rating, it’s not automatically a negative point. There are excellent private banks without a rating.
If you want results in private banking do the first step now and call us.
