Private Banks

Private banks are financial institutions that work only with high net worth individuals and large corporations. Most have a minimum salary or asset requirement for customers looking to open accounts. These banks offer everyday banking plus more specialized services such as asset management, brokerage, investment management and succession planning, handled by personal relationship managers.
