About us

Dreyfus Sons & Co Ltd, Banquiers dates back to the founding in Basel in the year 1813 and is one of the oldest privately owned Swiss banks. The bank is currently managed by the sixth generation of the founding family and employs some 200 long-term employees. The main office of the bank is in Basel. Furthermore, there are offices in Delémont, Lausanne, Lugano, Zurich and Tel Aviv.

Our equity capital and reserves are several times higher than the legal requirements. They will continue to secure our autonomy and independence in the future, while also avoiding the need to maximize short-term profits. To guarantee our independence, we deliberately refrain from investment banking activities.

Dreyfus Banquiers specializes in taking care of the wealth of private and institutional customers. At the same time the bank has extensive experience of dealing with family organizations, trusts and foundations.

The bank’s business activity is geared to preserving the long-term value of the wealth entrusted to it and to achieving risk-controlled returns. All of the bank’s services are tailored to the specific needs of the individual client. Personality and integrity and individual solutions are the hallmarks of our relationships with our clients.

Even in the case of portfolio management mandates the ongoing dialogue with the client enables individual requests and investment objectives to be fulfilled.

It is not unusual that the relationship between bank and client lasts several generations. The bank also values a lasting employment relationship with its staff. As a result, the same customer relationship managers are always available to their clients, so enabling long-term trust to be established.
