The Mason Privatbank Liechtenstein story begins in 1998. The Bank was founded as Raiffeisen Privatbank, a subsidiary of Walser Privatbank, which was among the first banks that gained a foothold in the principality in addition to the financial institutions originally located there. Under the name of Raiffeisen Privatbank Liechtenstein, the bank established itself as a reliable point of contact for wealthy private clients and intermediaries. In 2018, after 20 successful years of doing business, came the merger with the Mason Group, which is headquartered in Hong Kong. Raiffeisen Privatbank Liechtenstein thus not only gained a new owner, but also a powerful partner that is renowned in his home market of Hong Kong and is heading towards a stable and successful future together with it.
Mason Privatbank Liechtenstein specialises in advice and other services in the areas of private banking as well as for institutional clients.
