Our Client Advisers are a great sounding board for all your financial questions. Below we answer some of the most common questions they have been asked.

What is private banking?

Private banking is the provision of bespoke banking and financial services, usually to affluent individuals. Private banks typically offer a range of transactional and deposit accounts across multiple major currencies, as well as services which include foreign exchange, debit and charge cards, and mobile and online banking.

Private bank relationships are managed through a highly personalised, single point of contact.

Do I qualify for private banking?

While specific requirements can vary among institutions, private banking services are generally targeted towards high net worth (HNW) individuals or those with substantial investable assets.

Rothschild & Co private banking is based in Guernsey and requires a minimum ongoing balance of £250,000 (or currency equivalent). Minimum ongoing balance requirements for certain relationships may be decreased in consideration of a Wealth Management relationship or increased based on relationship complexity, at the discretion of the bank.

What is lending versus borrowing?

Lending and borrowing are two sides of a financial transaction. Lending involves providing money or resources to someone else, typically with the expectation of receiving repayment with interest over time. Lenders can be individuals, banks or financial institutions.

Borrowing is obtaining funds or resources from a lender with the commitment to repay the borrowed amount, usually with interest. Borrowers can be individuals, businesses or governments. The money borrowed can be used to fund personal expenses, investments or business expansion.

  • Banks: still stressed?

    Strategy Blog

    It has been almost one year since banking stresses first emerged – and quickly dissipated – in the United States. But amid renewed concerns over the country’s banking sector, could the unwanted return of market stress lead us to a full-blown banking crisis?
