Leader in discretionary management and pioneer in independent advice

In recent years, CaixaBank Private Banking has solidified its position as a pioneer in providing wealth management advice through its leadership in discretionary management in Spain and its support for independent advice.

The award for 'Best Private Bank for Discretional Portfolio Management in Spain 2023' recognises the leadership of CaixaBank Private Banking in this area, with the bank having €24.67 billion under management at the close of 2022, 7.5% more than in 2021. In 2022, this service was reinforced with the creation of Smart Rentas, a delegated investment service whose portfolio is managed in accordance with the personal needs and circumstances of customers, and that pays out income annually.

CaixaBank was the first bank in Spain to offer independent advice with the launch more than four years ago of CaixaBank Wealth, a value proposition for customers with assets in excess of €4 million. This service is offered at 13 exclusive centres. This commitment was reinforced in 2022 with the new Independent Advisory service and the creation of OpenWealth.

Independent Advisory is a service for customers with a potential net worth of one to four million euros. It offers a full range of products and services for an explicit advisory fee, guaranteeing full transparency for the investor. This service has specialised advisers in Private Banking centres.

As for OpenWealth, also launched in 2022, this is a pioneering independent advisory service in Spain, intended for customers who are worth over €50 million. The goal is to offer Multifamily Office services, regardless of where the customer's assets are deposited.
