Despite waves of worry emanating from COVID-19, rising inflation, Federal Reserve’s policy decisions, materials shortages, and rate hikes, the stage is set to strike a better balance this year. How? We have collated and condensed the views of our key partners who have shared with us the future they see for financial markets and how they are investing to prepare for it. As always, there are many risks to consider and, therefore, some nuances to our optimism.

Wealth Management

Building a higher standard of banking

There is more to growing your wealth than simply investing money. At Bank One, we help you navigate the complex world of financial services by bringing forth different investment solutions:

  • Execution Services: If you are well acquainted with market trends, you may want to manage your finances yourself. Trade directly on all international markets by accessing our extensive network of trading specialists. You have direct control on your investments; we simply carry out your instructions. We also provide you with insightful market information to better guide you in your decision-making.
  • Discretionary Portfolio Management (DPM): Managing your portfolio can be challenging and it is a full time job. If your time is precious and you prefer to have an expert oversee your financial assets, DPM was designed for you. Thanks to our Open Architecture model, you can choose one or more independent portfolio managers, who will leverage their in-depth knowledge to deliver your desired investment objective. Your Relationship Manager takes the time to understand your ambitions, unique circumstances and risk appetite, before defining your strategy and creating a customized roadmap to achieve your goals.

Ours is a people’s business based on personal trust. No matter the level of service you seek, it is the relationships we build that set us apart.
