Edgar de Picciotto, the founder and chairman of Union Bancaire Privee, one of the first bankers to advocate investment in hedge funds, passed away at the age of 86.

DBS Group Holdings looks set to acquire Royal Bank of Scotland Group’s Indian onshore operations. This deal will see the exit of Britain’s government owned bank from India.

This transaction would include DBS acquiring the entire business, which includes the corporate loan arm, debt capital market and ten branches of RBS.


No. 6 The Top 3 Concerns of the Ultra High Net Worth

Wealth-X conducted an Attitudes Survey with Knight Frank to gain insights about the motivations and behaviours of the ultra wealthy. The survey was based on views of around 400 of the world’s leading private bankers and wealth advisors who manage assets for about 45,000 ultra high net worth (UHNW) individuals with a combined wealth of over US$500 billion.

The survey found that succession & inheritance issues, wealth taxes and global economy were the three main factors threatening wealth creation over the next ten years.


No. 7 LGT profit increased by 28% last year

Globally, the bank boosted profit by 28% to 211 million Swiss francs. The institute managed by Prince Max von Liechtenstein has also increased assets under management in Asia. The Prince has said at a press conference in Zurich that the two branches in Singapore and Hong Kong with 350 employees are managing 25 billion Swiss francs in assets (up from an estimated 22 billion a year earlier).
