Hot on the heels of a number of high-level appointments, Geneva-based has added to its Basel private banking team, hiring Robert Lussi as manager of the branch in the city, and three new employees.

The Basel branch was moved to Hardhof at the beginning of the year, to an historic building built in 1904 located in the Gellert district. He will be accompanied by an assistant and two asset managers who will also join from Notenstein La Roche Bank.

Lussi, a former manager of the Basel branch of Notenstein La Roche Private Bank, has more than 30 years’ experience in private banking in Basel.

“The arrival of Robert Lussi and his team reflects our desire to strengthen Mirabaud’s presence in Basel, which is an important private banking centre in Switzerland. While Mirabaud has grown to become an international group, we remain loyal to our Swiss heritage, which is all the more important as we approach the bicentenary of Mirabaud’s foundation next year," Nicolas Mirabaud, recently appointed managing partner and head of wealth management for the Mirabaud Group, said.

Prior to this change, Nicolas Mirabaud led the Basel branch, but from Geneva  as there wasn't a Basel branch head in Basel.
