Parent company AES International CEO Sam Instone says, “Following on from our membership of l’Association Romande des Intermédiaires Financiers (ARIF), the opening of our office in Switzerland is an important part of our continued growth plans in Europe and the Middle East.
“Our mission is to continue exporting UK best practices to international financial services for expatriate and cross-border clients. Establishing a presence in Switzerland, one of the most prestigious financial centres in the world, allows us to offer our clients the same standard of service as local residents can expect from their onshore providers.”
Adds Chief Operating Officer John Viney, “Establishing an office in the World Trade Center Zurich, a part of the association that promotes international trade, is an appropriate expression of the nature of our business and the clients we serve.’
‘Moreover, the offices reflect a standard which our international professional clients have come to expect from AES,” elaborated Viney.
Instone adds, “We’re very proud of the fact that we are regulated in every market where we have established an office. It’s an important factor that allows us to build trusted relationships with our clients wherever we go.”
