  • the bank opens savings (investment) accounts;
  • an account can be opened without leaving Switzerland, a bank representative regularly visits Moscow;
  • "minimum entry" is 2,000,000 USD and the strict absence of any commercial transactions;
  • the term for opening an account - case by case (check with the consultant).

The Rothschilds. A legendary family name. A family name which is immediately associated with gold, billions and world domination. This is why this bank holds a special place on our list.

‘This bank’ means Banque Privee Edmond de Rothschild SA, located in Geneva and owned by Edmond Rothschild who represents the French branch of the Rothschild clan. They should not be confused with the English branch whose heirs own another bank - N M Rothschild & Sons Limited, located in Zurich.

President of France Nicolas Sarkozy is known for his connection with the French Rothschilds, and you would agree one should keep such facts in mind at the time of a financial crisis.

It is interesting that one of the first Russian ‘political emigrants’ Alexander Herzen sought James Rothschild’s assistance in obtaining payment under Russian state securities which had been blocked due to Herzen’s political activity. The banking house commission was 5%.

Surprisingly, 150 years have passed, but the fees for ‘financial intermediation’ services remain pretty much the same:)

Please pardon this lyrical departure, it has not a shade of sarcasm and is based on sources which I can give a reference to, if needed. And we definitely did not intend to ‘show the way’ for wretched perpetrators to hide their risk capitals. This bank is oriented towards a fundamentally different clientele: the minimum threshold is 2 000 000 USD and absolutely no transactions. The bank is tailored for purely private, very long-term, strong and reliable relationships.

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
