Crédit Agricole Private Banking, one of the world’s leading international wealth managers, announces that its operations across Europe, the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and the Americas will henceforth be united under a new organisational structure and a unique worldwide brand Indosuez Wealth Management, which will become the global wealth management brand of Crédit Agricole group.
This rebranding is the culmination of the Indosuez Wealth Management group’s strategic transformation that began in 2012 and is based on the foundations of the bank’s identity – its 140 year heritage, business model, ambitions and footprint across the globe. According to a press release, the single brand "reflects Indosuez Wealth Management’s international reorganisation and is part of a wider process of aligning subsidiaries in different geographies to offer a streamlined and cross-border service to families and entrepreneurs across the globe."
Globalising the brand is a major step for Indosuez Wealth Management, creating a single identity for clients and employees alike. Jean-Yves Hocher, Deputy CEO of Crédit Agricole S.A., in charge of Major Clients, commented: “The Wealth Management business is fully in line with Crédit Agricole’s customer-centric, universal banking model. Our aim is to offer our customers the full range of the Group’s expertise. The transformation of Indosuez Wealth Management is clear evidence of our ability to provide high value-added services to the broadest possible range of clients, while continuing to work in synergy with the Group’s other business lines, in the very best interest of our clients.”
Christophe Gancel, CEO of CA Indosuez Wealth (Group), said: “This is a major milestone in the company’s development. We have been committed to a major overhaul of our organisation since 2012 in order to optimise our resources and enhance our offering. This new organisation, combined with the new Indosuez Wealth Management global brand, will help us pursue our strategic goals while enhancing our visibility, supporting improved co-ordination and skills transfer. Indosuez Wealth Management conveys the commitment and high expectations we set ourselves in serving our clients, wherever they are across the globe.”
The name Indosuez has a rich heritage dating back to Banque de l’Indochine, founded in 1875. Since then, the bank has built a strong reputation advising entrepreneurs and families across the world, providing bespoke financial advice and tailored investment services. Today, Indosuez Wealth Management has 30 offices in 14 countries serving high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth clients worldwide and manages client assets totalling €110 billion (at 31.12.15).
The bank’s core offering is organised around three divisions:
- ‘Structuring Wealth’, which helps families and entrepreneurs develop efficient wealth structures covering private and professional assets and liabilities (this division now includes a global corporate finance offering);
- ‘Investing Wealth’, for best-in-class, tailored investment solutions, in all asset classes, with high value-added services;
- ‘Banking and Beyond’, which covers precision banking, lending, privileged access to our network and opportunities to meet and discuss with experts through our events.
