Swiss cantonal bank Basellandschaftliche Kantonalbank (BLKB) and Geneva-based private bank Lombard Odier are planning a partnership in the field of sustainable investments for the former’s customers.
As part of this collaboration, both entities will come up with investment strategies for wealthy private clients in north-western Switzerland. Both partners reportedly have a strong focus on sustainability in their business models, advice and offers.
The joint offer will be further specified in the coming months from a strongly customer-centric perspective as part of the holistic customer advice – especially in the investment area.
Products and services will then be made available to BLKB customers in the course of the coming year.
“Thanks to our planned partnership with the long-established private bank Lombard Odier, we can further expand BLKB’s existing offering for wealthy customers.
As a future-oriented bank, we live sustainability as an integral part of our business strategy and we see Lombard Odier, with its strong focus on this topic, as an ideal partner.”
said John Häfelfinger, CEO of BLKB.
“The sustainability revolution is spawning a multitude of major structural trends that will reshape our economies.
This opens up numerous opportunities for investors to generate attractive returns in the course of the transition to an emissions-neutral economy.”
adds Frédéric Rochat, Managing Partner and Co-CEO of Private Banking at Lombard Odier.
