The House of Hottinger

650 Years of History

Since the eighteenth century, the Hottinger family has been a modernising force – developing trading links, banking and capital markets in Europe and the New World.

Today, various parts of the group continue to be involved in banking and finance across the continents. Family members take leading roles alongside seasoned professionals from varied backgrounds, selected for their probity and dedication to their clients.

It is this international scope, breadth of experience and integrity which ultimately lies at the heart of our offering and helps us weigh opportunities against the risks inherent in volatile developed capital markets.

However large we grow, however many offices we open, you can be sure that we will always stay true to the character of the original Baron, Jean-Conrad Hottinger (1764-1841) who was described in the press as “a gentleman of considerable credit and reputation”.

We are proud to have been named ‘Family Office of the Year’ in 2017, 2019 and 2020.*

New Beginnings

In 2015, Frédéric Hottinger inherited much of his father’s business estate, including the jewel in the crown, the UK headquartered wealth management business Groupe Financière Hottinger & Co.

After decades spent forging this business he decided to invite in new partners, namely Archimedes Private Office, with the specialised skill sets requires to build a contemporary international wealth management business. The relaunched Hottinger Group focuses on traditional family values and providing exemplary services to discerning families.
