About us

Our team has more than 60 years’ of combined experience in Wealth Management and International Private Banking, both in Switzerland and abroad. Everyone, without exception, has worked for at least one major international bank and therefore is familiar with the internal processes of banks. 

Bankers. But without the bank.

Truly independent.

PrimeStone Partners AG is not affiliated with any particular bank. Therefore, we are truly on your side and provide impartial advice based on an open architecture. This means we will source the best products and opportunities on the markets without bias. You also benefit from an improved fee structure with the custodian banks.

Bank employees are forced to meet their employer’s expectations and, very often, the bank’s and the customer’s interests do not align. We, on the other hand, are on your side and represent your interests at all times vis-a-vis financial institutions and other service providers. Our work is clearly focused on investment results taking into account your needs and preferences. 

You call all the shots.

You choose the custodian bank where you would like to maintain your account and assets. Alternatively, we can recommend a suitable bank from our list of partner banks. Our partner banks also offer alternative booking centres to Switzerland like Liechtenstein, Austria, and Singapore.

We will manage the assets with the custodian bank and assist you with banking related matters. You retain full control over the account. Our power is limited to placing market orders. It allows us to efficiently manage the assets but does not allow for the transfer of assets out of the account.
