Our History

Crossbridge Capital has evolved from a provider of traditional private banking services to High Net Worth Middle Eastern clients to a fully integrated financial services platform offering bespoke solutions to entrepreneurs and families in Emerging Markets worldwide.

Crossbridge Capital, the brainchild of Tarek Khlat and Jean-Pierre Aoun was launched in 2008 with a total staff of 6 and the backing of Banque Julius Baer, the leading dedicated wealth manager in Switzerland. Tarek and Jean-Pierre’s vision was to build on their successful track record at Credit Suisse, where they had built up a $2 billion private banking business.

Today, Crossbridge Capital operates in many of the world leading Emerging Markets – from Istanbul to Ulan Bator, Moscow to Dodoma – supported by a team of 30 professionals in four Crossbridge Capital locations: London, Singapore, Monaco and Malta.  In November 2010 Crossbridge Capital officially opened its first Asia office in Singapore after receiving approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) and in May 2016 the company opened its doors in Monaco after receiving authorisation from the Commission for the Control of Financial Activities (CCAF).These signalled significant landmarks in the company’s history and set the bar for its ambitious, yet considered geographic growth strategy.

With considerable assets under supervision, Crossbridge Capital now offers a unique platform for clients to share ideas and capitalize on investment opportunities together, and with the early launch of its corporate advisory and principal investment divisions as well, offers a full range of financial services to its clients through its integrated wealth management and merchant banking platforms.

Crossbridge Capital has not only grown in the range of services it provides to its clients and increased its staff five-fold but it has established itself as a recognised force in three of the world’s top financial centres.

Our mission today is a simple one: to do well by our clients and offer them the best investment advice we have to give. To this end, we are inspired by our short history, but we’re even more enthusiastic about the future.
