In addition, Renato Santi has been appointed a nember of EFG International’s executive committee as of November 2016, after the completion of the acquisition of BSI. Over the past two decades, Santi held several managerial positions at BSI in Switzerland and abroad, and headed various strategic development projects.

We wish Renato all the best in his future endeavours. I am very pleased to welcome Franco Polloni in EFG International’s leadership team. He brings vast experience in private banking and wealth management and the Swiss financial centre. Together with my colleagues in the executive committee, i am very much looking forward to working with Franco and to draw on his knowledge to drive forward the combined business of BSI and EFG.”
