Middle East's best bank for wealth management 2017: Credit Suisse

The region’s wealthy are another group increasingly targeted by both local and international banks. The regional wealth management award goes to a firm with global breadth and expertise in this area, Credit Suisse, which also keeps the top spot in the Middle East in Euromoney’s 2017 private banking survey.

The operation here counts some 500 staff from relationship managers to structured lending experts, based in seven states, of which Saudi Arabia is one of the most active.

Ultra-high net-worth individuals account for most of the firm’s business in the region and their more complex needs benefit from Credit Suisse’s international franchise.
