  3. 3. BANK MEDICI 3 PREFACE Sometimes you might want to talk to a financial institution … where the quality of its banking services is undisputable where good and stable personal service is taken for granted where its shareholders provide for the guarantee of safety for your money but on top of these almost ordinary trademarks of high-level finance…… can deliver something of the hard to describe “Extra” or “Special” which can bring you forward... solve you a problem that might have financial relevance in the future provide for reliable and a trustworthy business network in other regions of the world to support your local ventures or simply has time reserved for discussing and commenting on your plans – and probably assist you later in implementing them. What makes us tick in your favour… is the quality of our reputation as good bankers and service providers and the power of our network as a platform for your ventures. What you can expect are good listeners that take the liberty to frankly tell you if something is beyond our means.
  4. 4. BANK MEDICI 4 AUSTRIA AS THE IDEAL BANKING LOCATION The Financial Times has noted, “Ideally, (private- banking) locations should add favourable tax regimes and high quality financial services to inherent stability. Even better are those that are appealing destinations in their own right, turning an annual visit to the bank into as much a pleasure as a task.” (Financial Times Report, Private Banking 2005) Vienna certainly fits the bill on all these counts.  Key High Net-Worth Individual markets are closely tied to Austria thanks to its EU membership, proximity to Eastern Europe and long-time position of neutrality  Momentous changes to Austria’s advantage in the web of global regulations affecting bank secrecy  A favourable tax code for investors  Austria’s economic and political stability  The emergence of the Euro as a major alternative currency of reference to the USD  The nation’s quality of life, affordability and other benefits for foreign residents; and  The Austrian capital’s superb infrastructure and accessibility Austria’ Location, Neutrality and Historic Ties Vienna’s location and economic ties leave Austria’s capital well-positioned to serve many of the largest and fastest- growing regions for HNWIs.  Austria’s economy is one of the most internationally integrated in the world, ranking ninth in the Globalization Index 2005.  Net direct foreign investment in Austria rose from around EUR 1.4 billion in 1995 to more than EUR 7.2 billion in 2005 Austria is a member both of the European Union and the European Monetary Union (Euro Zone), allowing it to capitalize on the emergence of the euro as a currency of reference.

  14. 14. BANK MEDICI 14 CASH 1. Fixed Deposits Fixed-Term Deposits in Euros (from one month to five years) and in foreign currency (from one to 12 months) yield interest rates in line with market conditions. The minimum deposits are EUR 20,000.00, USD 20,000.00, GBP 10,000.00, CHF 40,000.00, and the equivalent of EUR 100,000.00 for all other freely convertible currencies. When a fixed deposit is opened, an interest rate that will remain unchanged throughout the deposit period is agreed for a fixed amount in a certain currency. Money Market The money market is a subsection of the fixed income market. Unlike the bond market, the money market specializes in very short-term debt securities. Money market investments are also called cash investments because of their short maturities. Money market securities are generally issued by governments, financial institutions, and large corporations. These instruments are very liquid and considered safe. Because they are extremely conservative, money market securities offer significantly lower return than most other securities. One of the main differences between the money market and the stock market is that most money market securities trade in very high denominations. This limits the access of the individual investor. There are a range of Money Market funds available where the choice of which money market security to buy is delegated to an investment management specialist. For longer investment horizons, conservative bond and fixed income funds can be a viable solution.
