About Hottinger AG
The roots of the Zurich Hottinger family go back to the 15th century. The family's beginnings in banking date back to 1786, when Jean-Conrad Hottinger (1764-1841) founded the banking house in Paris. In the following years, the family played an important role in the development of the French economy and founded numerous companies, including the «Banque de France», the «Caisse d'Épargne de Paris» and the «Compagnie Générale des Eaux». The network of relationships built up during this time is still of fundamental importance for the success of Hottinger AG today. In 1968, the family became active again in their hometown of Zurich, where they opened their own bank, and in 1992, Jean-Philippe, François and Emmanuel Hottinger founded Hottinger AG. The seventh generation of the family was first represented in the company when Jean-Conrad Hottinger joined Hottinger AG as a partner in 1996. Since then, his cousin David Hottinger joined as a partner in 2010.

Hottinger AG is regulated by FINMA, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority, as a securities firm. As such, Hottinger AG is the custodian of client assets under its management. Hottinger AG is a Swiss public limited company with offices in Zurich and Geneva and has a broad global network. The bankers of the Hottinger family are mainly active in Switzerland, Europe and Latin America.
