Honoris Group has been in the international finance industry since the mid-1990s.
Our private and investment banking partners include the following banks – British Credit Suisse U.K. London, French BNP Paribas, Swiss HSBC Private Banking (Suisse) Geneva, Liechtenstein LGT Group Vaduz and Spanish Banco Santander.
We have a long-standing cooperation with Swiss and Austrian banks, with the Austrian Waldviertler Sparkasse Bank AG being an important partner of the Group. Recently, we have been developing an intensive and successful cooperation with Emirates NBD, the largest Emirati bank, following the Honoris Dubai project. This cooperation is not limited to the Emirate of Dubai or the UAE, but extends to the entire MENA region.
Our services for the Group's clients and business partners are provided from Honoris Group's headquarters in Prague and from Zurich, London and Dubai.
We have worked as financial advisors in a wide variety of areas, often very far apart. To cite three very different examples: we were the lead domestic advisor to the then winning Agrofert (in cooperation with the US advisory firm Salomon Brothers) on the first privatisation of the major Czech company Unipetrol. A completely different type of transaction was the successful sale of the Czech embassy in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, where we were the sole advisor to the Mongolian buyer. The last example is professional football and the transfers of players Pavel Nedvěd to Juventus Turin, Tomáš Hübschman to Shakhtar Donetsk and Zdeněk Grygera to Ajax Amsterdam – in all these cases and many others we have secured the entire financial structure of the transfers.
The Wealth Management section of the Honoris Group is increasingly important. Our VIP clients include, for example, internationals Zdeněk Nehoda, Pavel Nedvěd, Tomáš Sivok and Vladimír Darida.
For many years, we have also cooperated in the financial sector with various entities within the international Olympic movement. Our partners were directly the Presidents of the International Olympic Committee, Mr. Juan Antonio Samaranch and Mr. Jacques Rogge. We provided extensive expert support to the famous Olympian and President of the Czech Olympic Committee, Věra Čáslavská, for many years.
