Metzler's distinctive independence has been the bedrock of the company since its origins as a cloth merchant in 1674: we are independent in all respects and work exclusively in the interests of our clients. To create and maintain value for you, we are constantly driving forward the development of meaningful, future-oriented services. At the same time, our principles and corporate values do not change. They form the heart of our business and the basis of our integrity. Our sustained success proves that our distinctive independence pays off.
Inevitably, we have always paid more attention to the future than to the past, without reflecting on whether we may have accomplished a good deal.
Let’s take a look back at the more than 340-year history of Metzler Bank and its evolution from a cloth merchant to a private bank with its own distinctive profile. Who were the people who shaped the bank? What are the milestones from 1674 to the present day?
Throughout its long history, Metzler Bank has always appointed partners from outside the family to the management. That has enabled us to steadily extend the bank's expertise. When appointing board members, Metzler is open to new impetus from outside the bank, but also values the experience and expertise of long-standing employees. Today, six board members are responsible for the bank. All of them are directly involved in the day-to-day business.
The Metzler Foundation
Our foundation motto "doing good" works at two levels. On the one hand, we provide financial support, and on the other hand, we get personally involved in the foundation's projects to provide assistance and advice. This applies not only for the members of the Metzler family, but also for Metzler Bank’s staff members who volunteer their time to the foundation by sponsoring projects.
