Rahn+Bodmer Co. owes it special status to the strategic and operational collaboration of the Bank’s five partners. As traditional private bankers in the original sense of the term, they are fully responsible for the liabilities of Rahn+Bodmer Co. with their own private assets. A conscientious approach to risks is thus a top priority.

The five partners represent the third and fourth generations of their families. They are present every day and actively shape the corporate culture. As entrepreneurs, not managers, they have the same interests as clients: stability and security. For the company, which has been family-owned for generations, succession planning is one of the most important strategic tasks. The successful continuation of this tradition requires early planning and is a lifetime undertaking. The next generation, which consists of Simon Rahn as well as the brothers Sebastian and Jay Bidermann, is already active at the Bank. Jay Bidermann, the son of Martin H. Bidermann, underscores his aspirations with his answer to the question about his long-term goal: “I want to hand Rahn+Bodmer Co. down to my children in an even better condition than it is in now.”
