Sunlight and roses at Lombard Odier and Pictet 29/08/2014
Perfectionists may quibble that the inaugural sets of results posted by Lombard Odier and Pictet, two of the big Geneva-based private banking groups, may still be short of disaggregated and comparative time series-related details. But the consolidated data provided enables analysts and students of the Swiss private sector to answer a number of long standing questions about the absolute and relative size of both organisations as well as profitability and the efficiency with which they run their operations.

2000 and bust? 27/08/2014
The S&P 500 may have closed at 2,000 on 26 August after hitting an intraday high of 2,005. But so far with the exception of the United States, where the S&P 500 has posted returns of more than 8 percent for the year to date, 2014 has turned out to be a rather frustrating year for investors. Most major markets, and especially the UK, appear to have become range bound.

The $10 billion family office you've probably never heard of 26/08/2014
Multi-family offices (MFOs) and their cheerleaders have often aroused the ire of thewealthnet, not least because of the difficulty in distinguishing institutions that insist on using this moniker from more “conventional” peers, such as private client investment managers.

The Scottish independence referendum: A huge ragbag of 'known unknowns' 21/08/2014
There is now less than a month to go before the referendum on Scottish independence which takes place on 18 September. Scottish voters will be asked to respond to what appears to be a very simple question: "Should Scotland be an independent country?”

Big fines lie ahead predicts Bovill wealth and private banking principal 21/08/2014
Big fines and reprimands for compliance issues still lie ahead for wealth management. Mark Spiers, principal, head of Wealth Management and Banking at consulting firm Bovill, told thewealthnet he feared it would be three years before the sector closed the gap between UK regulator's expectations and reality.

Another shift in the UK wealth management sector's tectonic plates 20/08/2014
It sometimes seems that change occurs at a glacial pace within the wealth management sector. Take the adoption of digital technology, for example. This has had a transformational effect on other segments of the economy, not least the retail and publishing sectors.

Coutts ex Head of UK Family Business on her family advisory consultancy 19/08/2014
One Coutts client has impressed independent family adviser Juliette Johnson in particular.

50 not out – Warwick Newbury of SGPB Hambros celebrates half a century in private banking 12/08/2014
Not everything that began in 1964 has stood the test of time. Match of the Day may still grace UK TV screens and Paul McCartney is touring America half a century after the Beatles’ first US visit, but pirate radio station Radio Caroline did not even see the 1960s out and the US Airforce retired the Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird” in 1999.

Will private banks and wealth managers join shareholders action against Lloyds former chairman, chief executive and directors? 07/08/2014

So how rich is Tony Blair (or more reasons to avoid rich lists)? 06/08/2014
The explosion in the number of rich-lists that attempt to quantify the personal wealth of the rich, famous and downright lucky appears to show no sign of abating. Whether they are produced in response to a demand for this type of information from an increasingly voyeuristic general public or have helped create and fuel an increasingly voyeuristic general public remains an open question.
