Pricing models

EFG shows a high level of flexibility in finding the best possible pricing solution for Independent Asset Managers and their clients.

Clients can choose between an ‘all-in’ fee (brokerage & administration charges) calculated on the average value of the portfolio (including securities, cash and fiduciary deposits) or a pricing model based on individual services/products.
