"We at Kathrein Privatbank are convinced that life is about much more than financial wealth."

Strange to hear this from a bank. Admittedly. But for us, it was never just about optimising numbers. It's about the people and the stories behind them.

That's why we take a very personal perspective on your goals, values and interests. We are your reliable partner in all financial matters, offering holistic advice from our competent private banking team and, on request, also investing according to strict sustainability criteria. Because every portfolio, every investment and every financial decision is ultimately part of a larger story. And we help you tell it.
