our expertise in the middle east.

Lombard Odier has been active in the Middle East for some 50 years. We focus on a single business which seeks to preserve and grow your wealth for generations to come. We offer bespoke solutions that align with your objectives and values. Our bank has been an independent firm for over 200 years. We have thrived in that time by being solid and sustainable, and we foster a spirit of enterprise alongside values of integrity, prudence and responsibility.

Local expertise, international network

With decades of experience in the Middle East, Lombard Odier is supported by teams of experts in Geneva, Zurich, London. For the last 10 years we have strengthened our regional presence with a representative office in the United Arab Emirates. These multidisciplinary and multicultural teams rely on the asset management resources at our head office in Switzerland and at multiple booking centres around the world.


Personalised portfolio management based on risk

Our investment philosophy is geared to the long term, and we manage risk accordingly. We offer individual, straightforward, transparent portfolio management that adapts to the changing economic environment. If you want to take a more hands-on approach, our advisory and investment service is there for you.


Bespoke solutions certified as compliant with the principles of Islamic finance

Since 2012, Lombard Odier has been offering its clients investment solutions in-line with the principles of Islamic finance. These solutions are founded on a moral and ethical code, which seeks to protect investors from speculation and excessive risk. In February 2018, our discretionary mandate1 was officially certified as “Shariah-compliant” by the Shariah Supervisory Board of Amanie Advisors, an eminent Shariah Advisory Firm. It is a fully-customisable solution which offers a distinct break from other offerings in the market.  It draws on our roots as a socially responsible firm for more than 200 years and makes full use of our ability to develop sustainable investment solutions.


Prudence and stability

Lombard Odier is an independent group entirely owned by its Partners, who are both owners and managers. We are prudent in the management of our balance sheet, favour high liquidity. Our capital ratio is more than twice that required by our regulators. We are one of the world's most highly capitalised banks2 and do not rely on external debt.


Sustainable investment has been part of our DNA for 220 years

Since its foundation, Lombard Odier has always been a socially responsible firm, forging a long tradition of engagement with communities and sustainable development issues. We are convinced that every investment has the potential both to deliver performance and respond sustainably to the social and environmental challenges in the world. We have become pioneers in offering our clients solutions in this area, having led the way since 1997.
