Mirabaud strengthens its presence in Basel with new premises and hires to private management team

Basel, 27 February 2018. The Basel branch of the private bank Mirabaud & Cie SA has relocated to the Hardhof, one of the most iconic buildings in this city on the Rhine. In addition, four new staff have been recruited to develop its Wealth Management activities in the north west of Switzerland.

Present in Basel since 2004, Mirabaud has added to its private management team, which now consists of fifteen staff. Former Credit Suisse Manager for the Entrepreneurs & Executives (Private and Wealth Management Clients) sector in northern Switzerland, Kaspar Hess has joined the Mirabaud Swiss "Desk", together with three colleagues from major Swiss banking institutions.

Kaspar Hess, originally from Basel, has held various high-level posts in north-west Switzerland. A former Sales Manager for central and north-west Switzerland for the company Hotelplan, he joined Credit Suisse in 2008, where he was the local officer and market manager for private clients in the canton of Basel-Land, before setting up the Entrepreneurs & Executives business line for the north of Switzerland.

Mirabaud is moving into the Hardhof building

The arrival of these new hires coincides with the relocation of the Basel branch of Mirabaud & Cie SA to the Hardhof building. This historical building, erected in 1904 and located in the Gellert district, has been renovated to welcome Mirabaud clients, ensuring that they continue to receive outstanding services.

Nicolas Mirabaud, a limited partner of the Mirabaud Group, a member of the Executive Committee of Mirabaud & Cie SA, and Head of Wealth Management, is delighted with this development: "These new additions to the team will place their professional skills at the service of our clients. As with Zurich, where we have been present since 1998, Basel is a major hub for private management in Switzerland. By adding to its Basel team and moving its branch into a prestigious historical building, Mirabaud is showing that while it is a Group on an international scale, it still has its roots in Switzerland."

Kaspar Hess points to "Mirabaud’s strong identity in private management. Founded in 1819 in Geneva, Mirabaud has a genuine Swiss banking cultural heritage. Its international network and the cutting-edge skills of its experts allows it to provide tailor-made solutions to its clients."
