With headquarters in Geneva and branch offices in Lausanne, Zurich and Lugano, Cité Gestion proposes a rare business model in Switzerland that combines the best of two worlds: the safety of a bank and the autonomy of an independent asset manager.

Cité Gestion was founded in 2009 as a securities dealer and was bought out by its management in 2017. It then merged with several other asset managers, before obtaining a bank license in 2022. Cité Gestion counts 125 employees, of which around 80 are client advisors with a long experience in wealth and investment management.

Cité Gestion benefits from a top-quality technical infrastructure provided by Lombard Odier, enabling wealth managers to use a solid framework within a flexible structure, and to offer maximum availability to their clients.
