Swiss Global looks to set up offices in Middle East and Asia
Swiss Global Group has announced plans to open offices in the Middle East and Asia in an ambitious strategic move to build a 60-strong international financial adviser team by the end of 2018.
Swiss Global Group has today announced significant expansion plans across a number of continents, on the back of solid growth in 2017. The announcement will see the group open news offices in Europe, Middle East, and the Far East.
The Geneva-based company launched three years ago, and currently employs 33 advisers across three offices in Zurich, Geneva, and Basel with a further ten qualified advisers joining or being promoted from their associate programme by the end of April this year. The current staff at Swiss Global Group numbers 100.
The company’s expansion plans will see them expand to over 60 advisers by the end of 2018. Swiss Global Group sees particular opportunity in the development of their domestic and international financial advice, asset management and trust businesses.
Swiss Global Group consists of a number of companies including Swiss Global Investments, Swiss Global Trustees, and Swiss Global Asset Management.
Peter Balchin, CEO, said: “We see great potential in the clear divide growing between the private banks and the current International IFAs and we plan to capitalise on this opportunity.”
