Swiss Bank Corp. is revving up its private-bank marketing efforts in Connecticut with introductory receptions for prospective clients.
The bank plans to hold an investment seminar next week at the Field Club of Greenwich, an affluent New York City suburb. Attendees will be greeted by two partners of SBC Brinson, the Basel-based bank's global asset management firm.
Swiss Bank's U.S. unit initiated its regional campaign in anticipation of its move next year from New York to Stamford, Conn. Earlier this year, the bank celebrated the launch of new additions to its proprietary SwissKey funds at the Greenwich Yacht Club.
Other private banking groups competing in Connecticut include Bank of New York Co., Bankers Trust New York Corp., and Bank of Boston Corp.
