EFG International is a Swiss private banking group offering private banking and asset management services, headquartered in Zurich. EFG International's group of private banking businesses currently operates in around 30 locations worldwide, with circa 2,000 employees.


EFG International was formed in 1995 by Jean Pierre Cuoni and Lawrence D. Howell, and five others. The genesis of the bank was by the acquisitions of both the right to operate from the Zurich office of Banque de Deposits and the Swiss operations of the Royal bank of Scotland.[1]


EFG International's largest shareholder is EFG Bank European Financial Group, a Swiss bank based in Geneva, holding circa 56% of its capital. This is in turn a distinct and separate sub-group of EFG Group, based in Luxembourg. In addition, a significant stake is held by leadership, management and Client Relationship Officers.

EFG Bank is EFG International’s main Swiss private banking subsidiary. EFG Bank is headquartered in Zurich, and has branches and representative offices across Europe, Asia and the Americas. EFG International has a number of other private banking subsidiaries including EFG Private Bank Limited in the UK and EFG Capital in the US. More information on these can be found on EFG International's website (details below). More about EFG International's sponsorships can be found on its FB page (EFGInternational).
