RBS Coutts Bank Ltd is the international private banking arm of The Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
Incorporated in Switzerland with offices across the globe, they offer tailored wealth management solutions as well as trust and fiduciary services. Their heritage is closely intertwined with Coutts & Co, one of the early pioneers of private banking.
RBS can trace its origins back to 1727, and is one of the largest banking groups in the world. RBS Coutts is proud to be part of this long-standing financial institution and is delighted to be able to offer private clients the many resulting benefits such as access to a diverse range of services.
They believe that wealth management is more than just a business relationship. The starting point of any client relationship at RBS Coutts is one founded on trust earned through an in-depth understanding of the unique needs of private clients and the ability to harness their collective expertise to meet those needs.
Pioneering private banking for over three centuries
Their foundations of private banking expertise and heritage draw on Coutts & Co, their sister company, which is one of the oldest private banks in the United Kingdom, and Bank von Ernst & Co Ltd, a leader in Swiss private banking since 1869, which they acquired in 2003.
These pioneers in private banking have always understood the world of international clients and shared an unswerving dedication to personal service. Their clients come from diverse walks of life and have included a host of distinguished names from Charles Dickens, Frederic Chopin to Charles Darwin. Today, RBS Coutts clients are no less diverse and range from aristocrats to entrepreneurs.
Over the centuries, they have continually refined and enhanced the quality of their services, remaining in the vanguard of private banking. So much has changed since their earliest days; but their founders - John Campbell, Thomas Coutts and Vinzenz von Ernst - would still undoubtedly recognise the pioneering spirit they demonstrate today and their relentless pursuit of private banking excellence.
For them at RBS Coutts, wealth management is more than just a business relationship; it is a partnership founded and built on mutual trust. This trust is earned by an in-depth understanding of the unique needs of private clients today and their ability to use their collective expertise to meet those needs. Their aim is to provide each of their clients with truly exceptional personal service, based firmly upon respect for privacy, discretion and the desire to help their clients achieve their personal goals.
