Catella is a leading specialist in property advisory services, property investments, fund management and banking, with operations in 12 European countries. Our vision is to be the leading European partner to investors in property and finance.
Local business model in each market
Successful advisory services in the property sector require deep understanding and extensive networks in the local market. Catella applies a local business model in each market. We are close to the local deals, with wide networks in each market, local muscle and a vigorous spirit of entrepreneurship. After the geographical expansion in recent years, and with our European reach, Catella is also well positioned to support international investors
Cross-pollination of skills and coordination of initiatives
The ambition is to progressively increase cooperation among staff in the respective business areas and between geographical markets. This creates the prerequisites for sharing knowledge, developing better offerings and the capacity to handle complex and potentially cross-border assignments. It also enhances cooperation with other Catella business areas to develop local and international offerings alike.
Orientation towards capital market related services
Catella is working determinedly to increase the share of value-add and capital market-related services, which generate higher margins than dedicated transaction advice.
Competitive capacity to attract capital
Catella applies an integrated strategy for the capital market, thus becoming more relevant to international investors in connection with transactions and property projects.
Stable financial platform
Catella aims to build a platform that remains well-balanced in upturns and downturns. Beyond that, the ambition is to expand the business geographically and to achieve a larger share of recurring revenue.
Complementary products and balanced earnings
Catella is aiming for sustained growth in assets under management and to create additional products to strengthen the balance among product categories. A broad-based and complementary product portfolio contributes to good earnings balance.
Increased share of direct distribution of funds
Third-party distribution is central to Catella’s sales of funds to consumers. The strategy towards distributors is to offer a high level of service and an extensive portfolio of attractive products as a main alternative, a complement, or a building block in another product. In addition, Catella regularly evaluates opportunities for wider direct distribution offered by progress in digital technologies. Catella is also developing its own distribution, primarily towards institutions, but also companies and private banking clients.
Catella Bank is a scalable business. Growth will be primarily organic and within Catella Bank’s existing service segments, but the consolidation of the banking market is making way for other opportunities as well.
Benefit from higher demand for tailored services
Demand for private banking services from specialised institutions is growing as many banks are increasingly standardising their services. Clients with high demands often seek out smaller, more client-oriented institutions like Catella Bank. Catella Bank is oriented towards offering a wide selection of financial services and tailored solutions to high net worth individuals in Europe.
Collaborative development of offerings with the rest of Catella
High net worth private banking clients are looking for investments they cannot access on their own. With its strong position in the property market, Catella can deliver precisely that, including property investments and selected fund products, to clients of Catella Bank. The offerings are designed jointly with Catella’s other business areas.
Digitalisation is creating business opportunities in private banking to address new client categories and more effectively manage existing client relationships.
