Julius Baer Boosts Real Estate Offering In Geneva

Swiss private bank Julius Baer has launched a real estate brokerage offering this week in the Geneva region, an important real estate market in Switzerland. 

Julius Baer is expanding its real estate offering in Geneva from mortgage financing to brokerage services for private and commercial investment properties as well as for private residential real estate. 

Its subsidiary Kuoni Mueller & Partner, a real estate service provider, will develop the new services locally in Geneva, the bank said in a statement. 

Damien Carénini and Peggy Robillard have been appointed to join the new local team. Carénini, who started at the new KM&P location in Geneva last November, is responsible for investment brokerage. Robillard – joining in March – will be responsible for residential brokerage, the firm continued. They both have experience in real estate, knowledge of the local market and a network in French-speaking Switzerland.

Roman Graf, global head of real estate at Julius Baer said: “With our expansion into French-speaking Switzerland, we are implementing what we announced in 2021 when KM&P became part of the Julius Baer Group, acknowledging the importance of real estate as an asset class.”

Sacha Bodenehr, head of the Geneva domestic business at Julius Baer, added: “These new real estate brokerage capabilities will add value for our local clients and further strengthen Julius Baer's offering in Geneva.”

Julius Baer acquired Zurich-based real estate services provider KM&P in October 2021 to address the growing need of its clients for real estate solutions in Switzerland. The subsidiary KM&P, which is a part of Julius Baer’s real estate offering in Switzerland, acts as a partner in the areas of brokerage of private and commercial investment real estate, brokerage of private residential real estate, property management, and real estate valuations.

Based in Zurich, Julius Baer has offices across the world, including Bangkok, Dubai, Dublin, Frankfurt, Geneva, Hong Kong, London, Luxembourg, Madrid, Mexico City, Milan, Monaco, Mumbai, Santiago de Chile, São Paulo, Shanghai, Singapore, Tel Aviv and Tokyo.
