Banque Richelieu Monaco
Our organization focuses on our clients’ concerns. Each of them has access to dedicated, agile and professional employees.
Exclusive and personalized financial services
We focus on 3 major areas of services: wealth management planning, real estate financing solutions and tailored management of investment portfolios. Performance is at the heart of our client strategy. Our discretionary portfolio management and our personalized mandates represented a large part of our activity with performances that deserve to be highlighted and acknowledged.
We have organized ourselves ourselves around 5 key market segments: Europe and Monaco, Middle East/Levant, Eastern Europe/Commonwealth of Independent States, Africa and we are recruiting new bankers to support us. We have foreign partners, notably in Cyprus and Abu Dhabi (Banque Richelieu GCC), with whom we can build tailor-made offers.
The overly standardized approach of some financial institutions in terms of both compliance and documentary formalism is often incompatible with high-end international clientele. We strive to adopt a pragmatic, agile and rapid approach to decision-making without ever over-interpreting or replacing the competent authorities, without derogating from strict compliance with regulations. Fully understanding cultural differences, our employees from 12 different nationalities, speak nearly 15 languages to ensure greater personalization of customer relations.
We also support our independent managing partners within a dedicated team in order to provide them with a platform and adapted business solutions with integrated and multilingual services.
