Introduction

Our wealth is always a personal achievement and the materialisation of our aspirations and life style.

Our purpose is to help clients be proud of their wealth.

It is an expression of reason and emotional intelligence.
A worthy advisor heightens investment suitability to help grow clients’ fortune.
The advisor increases the quality of life of clients and harmonises their convictions with their portfolio positions.

After all, our wealth choices say more about us than any speech.

Our values

Independence
We manage our clients’ money without undergoing the slightest pressure whatsoever from banking groups.
Transparency
We do not hide our sources of information, costs or profits.
Reactivity
We respond quickly with information, the market highs and lows and useful decisions.
Adaptability
We adjust to changing market conditions with a keen focus on our clients’ interests and profile.
Respect
We build a fair and mutually beneficial relationship with clients.

Affiliation


Approved by the Swiss Association of Asset Managers (SAAM).

SAAM, with its 1,000 members, is the leading independent asset managers association in Switzerland.

Independent asset managers, who operate under the Anti-Money Laundering Act, must either be approved by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) or by a member of a recognised Self-Regulating Body such as SAAM.

Financial intermediaries who join SAAM automatically become members of the professional association as well – and are therefore obliged to meet the professional standards of SAAM in Switzerland.

These standards amount to official requirements – and are approved by FINMA.

Urban Advisors SA

José Thürler created Urban Advisors SA in 2017.

“We are independent managers, which means we are not product salespeople and that we manage your money in the most autonomous way possible.

We scrutinise markets to bring to light opportunities and investments that best suit your worldview. The meaning you give to your wealth. In harmony with your investor personality. In the way you envision the growth of your assets.

Our approach is to listen keenly and respond frankly to help you honestly because, where the exchanges are good, confidence may reign.”
