Reyl London appoints chief operating officer


After the opening of its London office in January this year, Reyl & Co is further expanding its banking activities in the British capital with the appointment of Gideon Wittenberg as chief operating officer with additional duties as senior client manager.

Alongside Ladislas Safyurtlu, managing partner, Wittenberg will assist in the development of Reyl London from an administrative angle while playing an active part in the rapid expansion of its business. He will be responsible for offering the group’s private banking services to international business leaders as well as promoting its full palette of services, which range from fund management (Reyl Asset Management) to private office services (Reyl Private Office) and investment banking activities.
Wittenberg, who officially joined on 1 May 2013, previously worked at SG Hambros Bank (London), as a private banker and later as a group commercial manager. In 2011, he became head of a workgroup tasked with the design and implementation of new investing services for high net worth clients.
“Gideon Wittenberg’s experience is well suited to the Bank’s ambitions in the UK,” says Safyurtlu. “Reyl & Co tailors its services to business leaders active for the most part in the global trade arena. For them, London is not only a natural gateway to the markets of Asia, the Middle East, Russia and the US but often also a mandatory crossing point. Gideon’s appointment is another step towards establishing a lasting presence in London in order to maintain genuinely close ties with clients and ensure a flawless level of service.”
“One of the chief advantages of Reyl & Co is that it is a family business led by professionals who are equally at home in private and investment banking. Consequently, they have succeeded in putting together a highly attractive package for entrepreneurial clients, whom are the focus of their efforts. I am delighted to be joining them and to be given this opportunity to contribute to the bank’s future growth,” says Wittenberg.
