What sets us apart
Investments and interests of our shareholder: A unique portfolio
Entirely in keeping with the spirit of our innovative founder Emil Georg Bührle, we have a wide range of interests, both business and cultural. They unite our sense for what is built to last with our feel for an opportunity. More than that, however, they shape every aspect of the culture and standards of our group.
Founded in 1949, IHAG Privatbank has family roots. It was established by global industrialist Emil Georg Bührle to support his companies’ financial activities. The Bank also managed its founder's private assets.
Emil Georg Bührle’s entrepreneurial spirit has shaped IHAG Privatbank from the start, so we have always been more than a conventional private bank. Today we operate as a universal bank, offering our clients a comprehensive range of financial products
A Global Brand at the Foot of Pilatus:
Founded in Stans in 1939 under the leadership of industrialist Emil Georg Bührle, Pilatus Aircraft soon established itself as a developer and builder of extremely high-performance small aircraft.
Today, Pilatus is a global brand which includes two independent subsidiaries in the USA and in Australia. Our shareholders have owned a substantial equity participation in the Pilatus Group since generations.
The Living Circle: focusing on quality of life
The concept for The Living Circle revolves around pleasure and quality of life. At the same time, the philosophy behind The Living Circle brings together the fine dining, hospitality and agricultural activities.
The Living Circle encompasses two 5-star hotels – the Storchen, steeped in tradition in Zurich's historical centre, and the incomparable Castello del Sole in Ascona, and two sustainable agricultural operations – the Terreni alla Maggia in Ascona and the Schlattgut above Herrliberg on the shores of Lake Zurich, as well as two beautifully situated country-style restaurants – the Buech above Herrliberg, and the Rustico del Sole high above Ascona.
