Banque Hottinger & Cie SA, founded in 1968 in Zurich, is one of the successors of the private banking firm established in Paris by Hans-Konrad Hottinger (under the name of Banque Hottinguer). Since its foundation in 1786 Banque Hottinguer has been very active in European economic life. For example, it took part in the creation of Compagnie Générale des Eaux, as well as that of the Insurance company Drouot (at the origin of the group AXA).

Banque Hottinguer in France was sold to Credit Suisse in 1997.

Today, Banque Hottinger & Cie SA in Switzerland continues its activities independently.

In 2013, the asset management company Hottinger & Partners SA - a separate legal entity - is involved in an embezzlement scandal.[1]
