Our clients - partners for generations

Have you ever heard the saying that “money has no earmark”? Figuratively, this means that homogeneous things cannot be distinguished from one another. Banks differentiate themselves through their services and their corporate culture. And no one can judge that better than our clients and employees.

Bank Gutmann is different – see for yourself and take a look at the current facts and figures about our company.

The numbers speak for themselves: about two thirds of our clients have been with us for over 10 years through good times and bad, some even 30 years and more. Many of them have lived through several economic cycles with us, including the Russian crisis of 1998/99, the dot-com boom and its abrupt end in 2000, the bull market up to 2007, the global financial crisis starting in 2008 and the widely feared breakup of the euro zone thereafter.

Our strong sense of responsibility is rooted in services tailored to our clients’ individual needs. We are happy that our clients evidently feel the same way.
We are also seeing continuous growth in new clients – since 2012, our client base has increased by 30% to a total of about 1,480.

The secret to our success? We take the time to listen to our clients. Only then can we respond, as equal partners, to their specific needs and build a lasting relationship based on mutual trust.

Our clients know that they can rely on our all-inclusive services. We attend to all wishes and requests, even if this means that we have to go the extra mile.
The most important resources of Bank Gutmann – apart from its loyal clients – are its employees: they are highly qualified, personally committed and closely connected to the Bank. Their long-standing experience and managerial expertise in times of crisis are valuable assets.

As at 31 December 2017, the Gutmann Group employed 247 staff members, 80 of whom have served the Bank for more than 10 years and counting, as has a third of its client relationship managers. Our clients appreciate this kind of consistency not only for emotional reasons, but also as a guarantee for long-term business relationships that last for generations.
