Julius Baer International opens office in Belfast
ZURICH-headquartered wealth management firm Julius Baer International has opened a Belfast office at Bedford House, making it the first Swiss business to set down roots in Northern Ireland.
It's the company's fifth office in the UK, and comes 20 years after it launched its first Irish operation in Dublin.
The city centre office, overlooking Belfast City Hall, will be home to two relationship managers and a senior wealth planner.
“The Belfast base will focus on providing clients with local access to Julius Baer's global investment and wealth planning solutions," says Jonathan Dobbin, senior relationship manager for Northern Ireland.
“The office houses relationship managers and wealth planners who understand the local and global markets and are highly respected within the private client community.”
David Durlacher, chief executive of Julius Baer International, added: “The opening of our new permanent office in Belfast represents a significant milestone in Julius Baer's history. It is a clear signal of our commitment to Northern Ireland and is a testament to the growing importance of our operations in the market.
“There is a strong culture of entrepreneurialism in Northern Ireland. Significant wealth has been created in the region over the years, and we look forward to providing clients with our unique approach to wealth management.”
Business owners, entrepreneurs and wealthy individuals in Northern Ireland now have local access to Julius Baer's global offering, across 25 countries and 13 wealth planning centres covering all major markets and time zones.
