Frederik van Gysel is a principal of a hedge fund headquartered in London. He has
wide-ranging personal investment needs that require a sophisticated level of service.
Mr van Gysel wishes to buy Brazilian government bonds for his personal account
in Switzerland, so we provide him with direct access to a Latin American trading desk specialist and
a local research analyst.
To finance his purchases, we enable him to borrow against his portfolio of securities
in his Singapore account.
Having analyzed his demanding travel schedule, our specialists advise him throughout
the purchase of a suitable business aircraft
and provide the necessary financing.
Mr van Gysel wants to make provision for his two daughters and any future children
of theirs, so our wealth planners set up a trust
containing an investment portfolio run by our managers.
