Pangaia Investment Partners has selected two international banking platforms on which it operates. Of utmost importance is the safety of our client’s assets. As such we engage only with systemic banks in reputable financial centres. We have known and retained relationships with those banks listed below for over 20 years:
Credit Suisse is a leading global financial services company with headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland and has total balance sheet assets in excess of CHF 786 billion as at September 2019.
InsingerGilissen Bankiers N.V.
InsingerGilissen is a subsidiary of KBL European Private Bankers SA (KBL epb), which was founded in 1949, has a presence in 50 cities across nine European countries and employs over 2,200 staff. It has AUM exceeding € 72 billion, total balance sheet assets of €11bn and a Capital Ratio of 17.2% versus a regulatory minimum of 11.52%. InsingerGilissen was established when Insinger de Beaufort and Theodoor Gilissen Bankers merged in 2017; these two companies were both originally private banks from Amsterdam with a rich history that dates back to 1779 and 1881 respectively.
Further safeguards are provided by a total segregation of our clients’ securities from their banking platforms, ensuring full protection in the unlikely event of insolvency.
Notably, the open architecture business model of Pangaia Investment Partners is not in any way restricted to the in-house offerings of KBL epb, InsingerGilissen or Credit Suisse and therefore provides the opportunity to hold direct or third party financial instruments (such as collective investment schemes, equities, bonds, structured products, ETF’s and investment funds) in a fully segregated portfolio via one of the safe custodians we have listed.
