  • What distinguishes MyPrivateBanking Research reports? Technologies are changing fast, each industry is different and customers in every sector have specific needs. This is even more true of the highly dynamic social media and mobile apps technologies and the complex financial services sector and its customers. We understand all three parameters, because we have focused solely on them from the start. Our reports can build on the vast amount of know-how and experience we have in-house. Our clients appreciate that, due to our focus, we understand their needs as well as those of their clients, when evaluating technological developments.

  • How does MyPrivateBanking Research ensure independence and objectivity? ?Our business success depends on the integrity of our research. We have no corporate connections to any financial services or technology provider and are fully owned by the management team. Our analysts develop their evaluations and recommendations without external influence and pressure. We have a strict Code of Conduct that our analysts are required to observe, including a ban on accepting reimbursements from companies covered. MyPrivateBanking also has no vested interest in whether a particular technology or business succeeds or fails. As a consequence our research is unbiased and our insights and advice are ones our clients can trust.

  • What are the qualifcations of the MyPrivateBanking Research Team: The founders and research heads of MyPrivateBanking Research are pioneers in the field of internet research. As early as 1996 they started to analyse internet trends and their application to business. With this early stage research advantage they founded and successfully developed FORIT, the first research company solely focussing on the internet as a business channel for the german-speaking region. After the acquisition of FORIT by the leading research firm Forrester Research in 2000, the founders of MyPrivateBanking took executive research positions at Forrester,  focussing on internet research for the financial services industry. Then, with more than 10 years of focussed research experienced, they launched MyPrivateBanking, to give scope to concentrating on the fast developing trends in social media and mobile apps.
