Guide for clients
For Euromoney rankings, providers of private banking services worldwide, including banks and other financial service companies, are surveyed. The result is a qualitative overview of the best in service and profitability among the banks included in the evaluation, which serves as a guide for wealthy private clients to choose the right private bank. The "Private Banking Survey," a quality scoring of European private banks, has been conducted annually since 2004. It analyzes the customer service quality in multiple service segments and creates a separate detailed ranking for each country. For objective results, Euromoney came up with a unique idea. Private banks and investment consultants are asked to name their leading competitors in the respective categories. The winner of a category is the institution which received the most mentions in that particular area of service.
