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.

Obviously, we just could not overlook such a well-know financial institution, especially if we take into account the fact that the bankers themselves have been actively seeking our attention. Every local manager, entering the  office (and the personnel rotation at this level of management is very high) deems it his or her duty to boost up the business relations by offering their services.
Geographically speaking, the range of our relationship with Credit Swiss widens to the beat of the occurrence of Russian-speaking employees in the Bank’s branches throughout Europe. In the first hand, its Geneva and Zurich, as well as London, Luxembourg, Monaco and (don’t be surprised!) Moscow. We met the representative of the Austrian branch of Credit Swiss at GSL Conference of 2005, which we held near Saltsburg in the town of  St. Wolfgang. The representative made a very good impression and demonstrated sufficient knowledge of Russian business-mentality, despite the fact that they seldom have the CIS customers in Vienna branch of the Bank. Unfortunately, he left the Bank in a year or so and our relationship (in this respect) came to an end. But we can always make a new start!
The fee for money transfer is not high (20-37 CHF), but the Bank mainly focuses on the customers’ investment transactions, where the fees may vary substantially.
