    Goals / Remit

    KBL operates its Private Banking network across six European countries under local brands with local entrepreneurial managements and own (banking) license with the exception of KBL España being a branch of KBL.

    As at 31st December 2018, KBL had € 39,5 bln of Private Banking AuMs, generating € 38,6 mln core operating profit (excl. capital gains and exceptional), and employing 1.799 FTEs, of which 309 Private Bankers. Culture
    KBL Group model is based on the conviction that Private Banking must be a client-centric activity with a strong accent on specific local needs, cultural awareness and local investors’ preferences. The entrepreneurial spirit and the commercial autonomy of each entity are seen as key success factors, especially when compared to bigger institutions, which often enforce very integrated commercial approaches. In order to maximize customer satisfaction, private bankers are working to position themselves as trusted advisors to their clients. Their mission is to advise each client individually based on his profile and expectations. With a human dimension, all entities thus work under their own local brand - with a focus put on strong local onshore brands - and with their own cultural specificities. However, in a constant balancing act, KBL identifies developments and services that may benefit from economies of scale when managed centrally.

    Complementary Information

    The persons having direct interactions with EU institutions is relatively limited and can be summarized to the bank's top management and Heads of Risk / Compliance / Legal entities.

    For all activities mentioned above and that shouldn't be included in the FTE count, there is no dedicated entity working on European policies, initiatives, and legislative files, however, they are all followed by several support teams such as Compliance, Risk, PMO, Legal and Corporate Center.

    Assessing the precise number of FTE working on those topics is complex and the assessment made above is an approximate figure
