BHF-BANK building

Corporate Philosophy

BHF-BANK is a modern private bank for internationally operating “Mittelstand” entrepreneurs and their families and for institutional investors. Our portfolio management and corporate advisory services are highly integrated and strictly focused on meeting the needs of our discerning clientele.

Our advisors cooperate seamlessly across their specific product and specialist areas to provide the best solution for each client. We offer our clients an integrated one-stop-shop service that can hardly be found at any other bank.

Private Wealth Management, as we see it, is a face-to-face business. Knowing and trusting each other is essential. We do not just focus on the tasks entrusted to us, we see the person as a whole and always take account of the close interaction between the client’s personal and business assets.
