The change is a response to the company's development over the past few years. In fact, two years ago our Group entered a new phase in its development, which translated into a renewal of its organisation.
“In addition, while its original focus was on private banking and alternative funds, NS PARTNERS has greatly diversified over the past few years, as seen in the success of its traditional investment funds and the growth of its investment fund services and engineering at its Luxembourg ManCo”, said Paolo Faraone, CEO of NS Partners Europe S.A.
“The letters NS, which we already use for our funds and some of our projects, are the initials of our two founders, Beat Notz and Christian Stucki. They tell our story in a concrete way and attest to our wish to maintain continuity. As for the word PARTNERS, it expresses the inclusion of new shareholders and the partnerships that we plan to create with our employees, our business partners, and our clients”, said Frédéric de Poix, Member of the Executive Committee.
A new Motto
This name change comes with a new motto, “Invest with talent”, reflecting NS PARTNERS’ conviction that there are truly talented individuals who generate real added value in terms of investing.
“Starting in the ‘60s, the group has been a pioneer in selecting the world's best fund managers and in working in open architecture. This innovative concept was a huge success, making NS PARTNERS one of the top independent wealth managers in Switzerland today. At the same time, drawing on synergies with our internal management teams, we have developed substantial expertise in several key themes”, added Cédric Dingens, Member of the Executive Committee.
The company names of the Group's various entities have changed as a result, as has the website address, which is now nspgroup.com.
