Graduation ceremony of the Academy First Investment

Last October, CMB launched the first edition of the Academy First Investment in partnership with the International School of Monaco. Last week, 24 young students were awarded a diploma by Marie-Hélène Parisi, Director of the Academy, and Federico Limiti, Head of Private Banking of CMB, in recognition of their efforts and diligence. Prestigious awards were also offered to several students who distinguished themselves during the program by the performance of their virtual portfolios. 

Entirely taught in English, the ten sessions of the course allow a public of high school students to understand the functioning of the financial markets. In practice, they manage a virtual portfolio throughout the program, taking into account their risk profile and objectives. 

The training courses are led by CMB experts and follow in the footsteps of the Women and Finance Academy and of the Philanthropy Academy.

Euromoney 2019 Conference: the strength of universal banking

At the international conference "Euromoney and IMN 2nd Annual Global Private Banking Conference" held in London on 21 February 2019, Werner Peyer, CMB’s CEO, presented a strategic reflection on the organisation of a bank and highlighted in particular the many advantages of the universal banking model. 

Cooperation between divisions and subsidiaries of the same group, each of which has its own expertise in specific areas, makes it possible to offer a wide range of services to customers. In addition, this way of operating helps to support each client in all their financial needs, taking into account their life cycle. 

Werner Peyer underlines the strength of the Mediobanca Group in this field and points out that this organisational model had contributed to winning the Euromoney Best Private Bank in Monaco award.
