In addition to its traditional custodian bank services, REYL Group proactively provides external managers with easy and efficient access to its comprehensive service offering: Wealth Management, Entrepreneur & Family Office Services, Corporate Advisory & Structuring, Asset Services and Asset Management.
François Reyl, Chief Executive Officer, comments: “With more than 2,500 professionals and nearly CHF 400 billion in assets under management, external asset managers are a key component of the Swiss financial sector. Bank REYL aims to develop leading-edge expertise in this area, to meet this market’s specific needs in terms of quality, pricing, response time, and offer depth. With an executive of Stephan Aepli’s calibre joining our Group, we can address these needs and continue to expand our business”.

Stephan Aepli, Director, concludes: “I am delighted to join such a dynamic, entrepreneurial group. Nowadays, external asset managers must meet the needs of a younger, more sophisticated client base, which means they must continually reassess their services offering. REYL Group is able to meet their every need by offering specific services for entrepreneurs and their companies, new unlisted and alternative investment products, and innovative art lending solutions, in addition to the traditional custodian bank, advisory and back-office services”.
