Expert assessment of Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse is a very large, top tier private bank with a very well-known brand, making it a good option for senior international investors.

Its size however may mean that the traditional values you would expect from a private bank, such as trust and an uncompromising duty of care, are harder to achieve. It will also only be able to push its their own products and services, as opposed to being able to offer you the best available.

If you are already a private banking client of Credit Suisse, we would recommend a no-obligation Second Opinion to ensure you are on track to reach your ideal future.

Additionally, we are happy to review the financial plan that has led to the investment portfolio you currently have.
