Origin of Bergos AG
In 1590 Hans and Paul Berenberg founded their trading house business in Hamburg. In 1711 they changed their business to a bank.
The owners of the bank have a personal liability; therefore, Bergos AG has a high level of management continuity and strict risk management. During its over 430 years of history, the bank had only 38 different partners with personal liability.
Berenberg Bank (Switzerland) Ltd was established in 1988 and is an independent and autonomous Swiss bank. The bank has offices in Zurich and Geneva and assists international and domestic clients in managing their assets.
Bergos AG is one of the leading asset managers in cost-effectiveness and profitability.
In 2018, while celebrating the bank’s 30th anniversary, some ambitious shareholders, together with the actual management attained 80.1 % of the bank.
In 2020 Berenberg Bank, Hamburg, the former mother company sold its remaining shares.
This was the origin of Bergos AG. Bergos is composed of Ber (Berenberg) and Gos (Gossler).
The new name Bergos represents the two founding families Berenberg and Gossler.

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.
