What are the prospects for the wealth managemen... - Posts - Quora

From the picture window in his office suite, Arturo Fasana of the Rhône Gestion company that he jointly founded in 1984, scans the future, a future that touches his country, Switzerland, his profession, and his company. He has been part of those three environments for over 30 years and knows them like the back of his hand. Wealth management is a job he has always been involved in, from his very first job through to the present day family business that he runs with his colleague Bertrand Hagger. His passion for finance has never waned; on the contrary, it has been enriched with the experience he has acquired during all this time. Over the last thirty years, Arturo Fasana has been confronted with almost every describable situation—crashes, booms, crises—and in each case he has retained the key lessons and put them at the service of his clientele.
 
But times change, and so have the contexts. Globalization and competition are now a major influence on company strategies. Companies have to compete worldwide. So how does the Swiss financial marketplace fit into this context and what is its effect on the key entities involved?
 
According to Arturo Fasana, the next two years are going to be of capital importance. We can expect a lot of consolidation in the banking and financial sector resulting from ever-tougher competition in this area. An upheaval of major proportions has already affected the Swiss financial companies, who are now obliged to reveal much more information about their clients’ accounts. This brings them into line with companies in the clients’ own countries and leads to stiff competition, most notably in the area of account management and transaction costs. What is the best response? Arturo Fasana insists that it involves drawing on the core strength of the Swiss financial marketplace, namely the unrivalled skill of the country’s financial establishments in providing the genuine added value that enables Switzerland to stand out from the rest.
 
Another unquestionable attraction that Switzerland holds for investors is the robustness of the Swiss franc. Considered a safe-haven currency, Swiss francs are popular with most of the world’s investors. Arturo Fasana points out that the currency’s strength is a reflection of the weaknesses in neighbouring countries: whenever political or economic uncertainty abounds, the Swiss franc increases in value.
Unlike most countries, Switzerland enjoys a stable political climate, in no minor part due to the population participating directly in the country’s decisions. Its economy is built on high added value businesses and on highly qualified production workforces. There are a host of companies making and selling what we might call “niche” products—restricted ranges of very specialized products—as can be seen to striking effect in the chemical industry. The effectiveness of the Swiss institutions in managing the country, the ongoing presence of a strong currency that bucks recession trends, the ability to offer high added-value products and maintain vibrant economic growth—all these contribute to swaying investors in the direction of Switzerland when placing their money.
 
If there’s one economic activity that stands out among all those on which Switzerland has stamped its name for the quality of its services and goods, it has to be the financial industry. With its high degree of specialization in managing private and institutional assets, Switzerland offers a highly qualified consultancy service and placement strategies that are based on the definition of clients’ expectations. These same clients have access to a vast choice of financial instruments, skilfully handled by managers and specialists who are wholly familiar with foreign languages and cultures, through offerings materialized by a diverse range of banks and other active partners. With competition currently running very high between establishments offering similar services, managers are fighting not only to attract their portion of the potential customer base but also to keep the clients they already have. This raises the question of how to provide an offering that stands out from the crowd. For Arturo Fasana, experience in the field is an argument of great substance. For Arturo Fasana’s company, one of its major selling points is a 30-year history during which Rhône Gestion has forged know-how from every imaginable kind of extreme situation, booms and crises alike. The ability to secure the loyalty of clients is another. When they find themselves guided by a top performing team in a climate of reassurance and trust, investors know they made the right decision in keeping their accounts in Switzerland, and more specifically, with Rhône Gestion.
 
Lastly, the skills of the company staff, who invariably show great responsiveness in adapting to new tax regulations and other legislation, are undeniably yet another Rhône Gestion advantage in favour of its current and future clientele.
 
Adapting with acquired ease to the changes affecting the world of finance, putting experience to work, establishing and upholding a relation of trust with its clientele, concentrating on its key skills, leading the way in working transparently—these are all terms that sum up future prospects in the business of wealth management as seen by Arturo Fasana.
