Considerable regulatory and cost pressures are forcing private banks to adopt new business models and clear client segmentation; this according to the latest international private banking study conducted by KPMG and the University of St. Gallen.


The study also covers issues such as:


  • How does Luxembourg fare in international comparison to its competition in Switzerland, Austria, Singapore and Hong Kong?
  • Are location-related factors such as political stability or client data confidentiality still regarded as key unique selling points?
  • Is it even worth continuing to pursue cross-border business in such a heavily regulated environment?
  • How is the expected wave of consolidation in the private banking sector developing?
  • Which clients should be served and which not or no longer?
  • How will the role of the client advisor change?
