Aquila & Co. Ltd.: Who we are
Aquila & Co. Ltd. was founded in 2000 by Max Cotting as a platform for independent asset managers. Aquila & Co. Ltd. has held a banking license since 2012 and is under the supervision of the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA).
Aquila & Co. Ltd. is 100% privately owned and works exclusively for and with asset managers and family offices. It is neither in competition with them nor does it allow conflicts of interest to arise.
Aquila & Co. Ltd. is the first Swiss bank established exclusively for independent asset managers, family offices and their clients – the only innovative business model of its kind in Switzerland to date. Aquila does not engage in trading for its own account, nor does it take on product or market risks. The Bank boasts a high equity ratio and superior level of security as a result.
In the words of Max Cotting, founder and CEO, “Independence is our most important asset, and our long-term autonomy is a top priority.”
