Saanen Bank – a success story
Saanen Bank dedicates all its know-how, experience and flexibility to the task of building mutual confidence. After all, like you, we are part of Saanenland – we belong to you.
SB Saanen Bank Ltd. was founded in 1874 and prides itself on a long and successful history. On 1 January 2016, the Bank had 42 employees and five apprentices. Our Bank’s deep roots in Saanenland have enabled healthy and sustainable growth to be achieved down the years.
What we stand for
As «the leading bank in Saanenland for locals and guests alike», our vision is to be the reliable and knowledgeable yet flexible banking partner in the region. We work daily towards this goal and we are committed to meeting our objective.
«The success of the Bank rests on satisfied clients, shareholders and employees, as well as on being locally accepted with a solid reputation in the region.»
This is an original quotation from our philosophy. We are convinced that these factors will remain decisive for our success in the future. For us, this means:
We want to generate added value for our clients and in so doing, expand our business.
Our shareholders should enjoy sustainable growth in the value of their shares coupled with transparent and assessable risks.
We are an attractive employer for committed and loyal employees who identify with our Bank.
We act in a client-oriented, knowledgeable, reliable and sustainable manner. We are conscious of our business, social and public responsibilities, and we therefore make significant contributions to the positive development of the region.
We take on responsibility, make decisions, and implement these decisions consistently. The security and stability of our Bank lies at the heart of everything we do.
We understand our business and fulfil our clients’ expectations. Ongoing training is important to us. We respect our colleagues and support one another across departments, always acting professionally. We learn from our mistakes.
We communicate with our clients and employees openly and honestly. We trust one another and discuss issues directly. Our relationships are characterised by mutual support and respect. We are appreciated by our peers as a trustworthy and knowledgeable bank.
We keep our promises and meet our deadlines. We communicate in an active and timely manner.
We are an independent bank. We know our clients personally. We find individual solutions for our clients and implement them swiftly.
We are always committed to giving our all for our clients, shareholders and colleagues. We actively change and evolve. We take on board suggestions for improvement, and we are open to new ideas.
Saanenland, where Banking matters
Anyone who works together with Saanen Bank supports the entire region, both directly and indirectly. BECAUSE SAANENLAND MATTERS TO THEM, AS IT DOES TO US.
MARKETING / SPONSORSHIP
For many years now, Saanen Bank has been supporting countless large and small events in Saanenland with generous sponsorship contributions, thereby helping to ensure the diversity of these events – an extremely important factor in the successful future development of the region.
Saanen Bank currently employs 42 people (excluding apprentices), equating to 36.6 full-time positions.
In the past 10 years, a total of 11 apprentices have successfully completed their training at Saanen Bank (some with a vocational diploma). The Bank currently has five apprentices. Incidentally, nine of our former apprentices now work for Saanen Bank – in various functions, including executive management – having either remained since their apprenticeship or returned following other employment.
Saanen Bank strives to ensure that it uses local suppliers wherever possible when procuring materials. This also applies to organisation and procurement in the case of major events such as the annual general meeting, which is attended by some 500 guests.
JOINT BRANCHES WITH GSTAAD SAANENLAND TOURISM
The two Saanen Bank branches in Lauenen and Gsteig are also able to run a tourist office using the staff at these branches.
ALL DECISIONS MADE IN SAANENLAND
Thanks to the Bank’s independence, all decisions – within the framework of legal and regulatory requirements, naturally – are made in Saanenland. Our employees’ knowledge of the region and its people therefore enables us to find tailor-made solutions (for example, in the credit business) that in turn have a positive effect on the sustainable development of the region.
Over the past 10 years, Saanen Bank’s total tax expenditure has been CHF 13.8 million, and the majority of the Bank’s staff pay tax in Lauenen, Gsteig or Saanen.
COMMITTED TO THE REGION
Many of our employees are involved in supporting the development of the region, not only at work, but also in their free time. Whether as part of a municipal council, committee or commission, staff at Saanen Bank contribute many hours of voluntary work outside their working hours.
