As a seasoned business attorney and board member at various companies, I’am closely involved in and help to shape the strategy processes of clients from a wide array of industries. In today’s world of private banking, we’re in the midst of a deep change process. Clients want genuine innovation and changes that afford them added value at a lower cost. As in the past, the rather stodgy private banking industry is having a tough time adapting to those altered circumstances. In this environment, I see real opportunities for our still-young Globalance Bank. The open-mindedness of the Bank’s devoted and experienced management team, the resolute focus on clients’ best interests, the tremendous desire to develop innovative concepts and successfully introduce them in the marketplace – those factors give me confidence. Add to that a constructively critical Board of Directors whose members bring with them what for a private bank is an unusual variety of skillsets and experiences and who work with management harmoniously and synergistically. With our innovative concepts and ideas, we truly have the chance to exert a positive influence on the changes underway in the world of private wealth management.
