Long term view & wide angle lens
Rooted in history, focused on future
J. Stern & Co. builds on the successful 200-year banking history of the Stern family:
The Stern family traces its root back to the 17th century merchants of Frankfurt’s Jewish Quarter. In 1805, Jacob Stern converted the family business into a bank called Jacob S.H. Stern & Co., which became one of the most prominent banking institution in Germany.
He sent his sons from Frankfurt to build banks in three European capitals Paris, London and Berlin, where they prospered over the subsequent two centuries.
The family built its own banks and were founders and major shareholders of leading banks that have persisted to this day, including BNP Paribas in France, Garanti Bank in Turkey or Banamex in Mexico.
J. Stern & Co. is the family office of members of the French part of the family, who owned A.J. Stern & Cie., later Banque Stern, and who sold it in 1988 to what is now UBS.
