Individualized Care

Mergers in the banking sector are a daily occurrence. As banks grow ever larger, they move further and further away from their actual vocation: serving the customer. We at Meinl Bank still offer our clients what they want most of all even today: objective yet individualized advice. That offer is obviously appreciated, as the steady growth of our business shows.

We are always on the lookout for new, innovative products and investment strategies for our clients. The first company to detect and seize opportunities is the one who tends to benefit most from them. The international contacts of Meinl Bank and the experts at its international subsidiaries keep the Bank right in step with the worldwide convergence of financial markets.

People entrust us with something of tremendous value: their capital. We are fully aware of that fact and treat that capital with great care. Meinl Bank has a stable economic basis. It’s equity ratio amounts to 16%, twice as high as the legally-required capital backing.

We make available to our clients our extensive in-house infrastructure covering all essential aspects of banking. Besides securities accounts and account management, we have an efficient trade department and our own investment company, Julius Meinl Investment Gesellschaft mbH.

State of the Art Technologies

Meinl Bank utilizes the very latest technologies. Special financial products pose special challenges. Our in-house experts develop the appropriate tools whatever the task, from the assessment of structured products to the optimization of portfolios. In other areas, we rely on software from external experts, such as the Standard & Poors Fund Database for the evaluation of funds or Profit Line of Österreichische Kontrollbank AG to measure performance or analyze earnings risk. In these cases, as with the fund accounting program of SparDat, the key is to know where to obtain essential information. And speaking of essential information, we naturally also have links to all the major information and trading systems, like Bloomberg, Reuters, Xetra, Webtrade, and Jiway. -

Our personal contacts in Eastern Europe and the trust we have engendered there give us a solid foundation for transactions in this region. We have built up our service on that foundation to create added value for our domestic and foreign clients with our customized products.
