Zurich, 3 January 2022 - Julius Baer Group today announces that it has signed an agreement to sell all shares in Wergen & Partner Wealth Management Ltd to the management of the Zurich-based independent wealth manager. The transaction follows a review of the Group's strategic participations and the conclusion that Wergen & Partner Wealth Management Ltd can develop best under the ownership of the existing and future management team.
Julius Baer acquired Wergen & Partner Wealth Management Ltd in February 2017. The company, which has always been profitable, has since developed successfully under the unchanged leadership with assets under management doubling.
The current Wergen & Partner team of six people will continue to independently serve the clients of Wergen & Partner Wealth Management Ltd that are booked with various custodian banks. The transaction is due to be closed in Q1 2022.
