FAMILY OFFICE SERVICES AND BUSINESS MODEL
Long-term perspectives aligned with the objectives of our clients
Optimizing the banking structure
The client’s assets will remain in the original bank account. GBS Finance Family Office could even improve it using the agreements with first level international private banks.
The objective of optimizing the banking structure is to eliminate any conflict of interests and to improve the cost structure. GBS Finance Family Office acts exclusively as the point contact with the entities which client chooses, focusing only on asset management.
In compliance with our total transparency policy, the client is the only person to pay our family office service fees. All the savings or regressions which are obtained from product providers or depositaries, will be fully returned to the client.
This eliminates the conflict of interest that banks and other financial institutions have when receiving fees from the product or from the portfolio rotation.
A “100% open architecture” allows our family office to expand and optimize the investment portfolio returns. We have total access to any benchmark institution, which allows us to work with the best managers avoiding conflict of interest.
360º vision and a special focus on the family office client.
We invest globally in any kind of asset, with no country restrictions.
Furthermore, if the client wishes, we can carry out a portfolio diversification against traditional investments with investments in Private Equity, Real Estate and others.
On the basis of preserving the wealth of our clients, we have adopted an approach that embraces personalized and controlled risk, for which we have a business model characterized by:
Our “100% open architecture” enables us to have a broader view and optimize the profitability of the investment portfolio. We have full access to any institution in its sector, allowing us to work with the best managers without any conflicts of interest.
NO DEPOSITARY RISK
GBS Finance does not offer depositary services. This means that the client will continue to have their funds deposited at the bank of his/her choice and continue to receive all of the information from those entities. GBS Finance will act as an intermediary, offering the client straightforward and unified management with a global scope.
GBS Finance consolidates all information regarding investments and compiles a tailor-made report for each client. This full and clear vision of each portfolio is the basis for controlling profitability, optimizing the portfolio and better monitoring of risk.
The family office client is the only person who pays our fees. Any savings or rebates obtained from the product providers or custodians are returned in full to our clients. This removes the conflict of interest that banks and other financial institutions have of receiving commissions based on products or rotation of the investment portfolio.
