Global sporting event 2011 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is fast approaching, and with it comes the Middle Eastern premiere of Falcon Private Bank’s Scuderia Toro Rosso sponsorship.
The agreement with Scuderia Toro Rosso was signed in May 2011, and Falcon Private Bank has since been present at Grand Prix’s across the globe. The Abu Dhabi race however has been highly anticipated due to the bank’s link with the UAE capital through its Aabar Investments ownership. To celebrate its partnership with Scuderia Torro Rosso, Falcon Private Bank recently welcomed guests to an exclusive meeting with Sébastien Buemi at its headquarters in Zurich.
“Scuderia Toro Rosso has a dedicated team of talented, dynamic and ambitious professionals backed by a strong ownership and with a vision for success in pole position - just like us. We are very much looking forward to the Abu Dhabi race and our activities surrounding it next month,” commented CEO Eduardo Leemann.
The Abu Dhabi race comes at exciting time for the Bank as it continues to strengthen ties in the region, following the opening of its Abu Dhabi representative office in April this year. At this time, and in line with its dynamic expansion plans, Falcon Private Bank set a target of increasing Assets under Management from the UAE to $1 billion by the end of 2011. The Bank has almost hit this mark – the latest figure currently stands at $950 million (as of September 2011).
