Instead, it is paid according to the usual big bank bonus model. As a result, Ermotti lost his chance to be among the five richest Swiss bankers.
Because even with his annual basic salary of 2.5 million francs and an estimated fortune of 200 million francs, the banker is far from the highest earners.
Martin Ebner ranks first with assets of CHF 3.5 billion. This is the result of the “richest” list compiled by the business magazine “Pilans” every year.
The 77-year-old financier founded BZ Bank in 1985. For more than 35 years this has been the backbone of many risky deals. In the summer of last year, Ebner sold 70 percent of his shares to Graubündner Kantonalbank.
The Ariane de Rothschild family traces between 2 and 3 billion francs. With her bank, Edmond de Rothschild, she managed a little more wealth each year. So far, however, he has not managed to surpass Martin Ebner.
In third place is the Di Becciotto family of Geneva. Thanks to Union Bancaire Privée, it has assets of CHF 2.5 billion. The Vontobel and de la Cour families follow closely with 1.5 to 2 billion.
The Cornaro family’s assets are below the billion mark of 700 to 800 million francs. With Corner Bank, you run a global bank that earns about five percent of sales with plastic money.
