GSL reference about the bank

Being professional intermediaries, we are limited in giving public opinion about some financial institutions. Please contact us directly to obtain more detailed feedback.

Back in 1992, we met a Swiss bank officer who at that time worked at a bank which almost for a decade had represented and had been associated with Swiss banking system in the CIS. The bank’s name almost had become a byword so widespread was its presence in the post-Soviet territory.
In 2008, our acquaintance joined the team of a dynamic private bank which for 30 years was under the management of one and the same group of partners. With his arrival the bank acquired knowledge of the Russian market and gained a vast practical experience.
Charges for transfers are relatively low (20-37 CHF), but the bank is oriented towards traditional investments and offers a substantial variety in this area

    History The idea to create Banque Heritage came to the students of University of Lausanne Carlos Esteve: Antonio Bravo and Louis-Frederic de Pfyffer in 1970. However, it wasn’t until 15 years later that this idea could be implemented. The many years’ experience of Carlos Esteve in audit, consulting and private equity management allowed to establish a small family company for the management of this family’s assets. The well-earned reputation of his firm allowed to expand the family business. So having re-united with his former fellow students slash colleagues, Carlos Esteve founded Banque Heritage and became his CEO
