Maerki Baumann - Privatbank - Zürich - Journal - April 2023


April 2023 - In addition to being Switzerland’s most important financial centre, Zurich also offers a rich cultural and social life. The family of the two owners of our private bank Maerki Baumann & Co. AG, Hans G. Syz-Witmer and Dr Carole Schmied-Syz, plays an active role here in some respects. Our ties to Zurich are also firmly anchored in our bank’s corporate culture and values. In this edition of Maerki Baumann’s “Journal” magazine, Chairman of the Board of Directors Hans Syz provides an insight into the world of guilds that he was born into. Find out more about his efforts in the latest edition of the Journal.
