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.

Мы не могли, возможно, забывают такую ​​известную финансовую организацию, особенно при условии, что сами банкиры активно ищет, чтобы встретить нас (и продолжают делать это сейчас). Каждый новый региональный менеджер (и ротация персонала на этом уровне управления является очень высокий) считает, что его или ее долг, чтобы повысить наши деловые отношения, предлагая свои услуги.
География нашего бизнеса с Credit Suisse, ширина которого достигает банка цепь филиалов по всей Европе с русско-говорящими сотрудников. Это, в первую очередь, Женева и Цюрих, а также Лондон, Люксембург, Монако и (не удивляйтесь!) Москва.
Мы встретились с представителем австрийского отделения Credit Suisse в 2005 году на Конференции GSL состоявшемся недалеко от Зальцбурга в город Санкт-Вольфганг. Представитель оставил очень хорошее впечатление и продемонстрировали достаточные знания российского бизнеса менталитета, несмотря на относительно небольшое число клиентов СНГ в филиале Венской для которых Россия не была целевой рынок. К сожалению, он ушел из банка в год или чуть позже, и наши отношения (в его тогдашней мощности) подошел к концу.
