What sets us apart? Our values.


Driven by an ownership mindset, we stand for empowerment and personal responsibility.


We embrace independent thinking to capitalize upon the future.


Determined to deliver, we stay on course in a changing world.

What it's like to work here?

We trust each other. And we like to support one another in creating new opportunities. Our nimble approach and lean processes empower people in every position to make decisions, acting as trusted business owners.

We’re constantly looking for ways to better serve our clients. And we’re future-oriented – always on the lookout for new technologies and opportunities. Have an idea? We want to hear it.

We like to get together. Collaboration is encouraged. Throughout our Zurich campus, for example, you’ll find lounges, terraces and rooftops to get to know your colleagues and brainstorm. And when you’re eating your free lunch in our canteen, you may be sharing a table with your teammate, or perhaps the CEO.

We come from all kinds of backgrounds – and we know that gives us an edge. We’re proud that from our Swiss roots we have grown into a modern, dynamic, multi-cultural and multi-lingual team.

Our history

Close ties with the Vontobel family place us in a unique position to stay the course through market turmoil while guaranteeing our entrepreneurial independence. We consider the resulting freedom as an obligation of social responsibility. Our brand colors have their origin in the family crest due to this strong connection.

Corporate responsibility has a long tradition at Vontobel: from sustainable investment solutions, to environmental sustainability, through to serving communities. No greenwashing, just a sincere and consistent commitment to fulfilling our corporate responsibility – an achievement for which we regularly win awards.
