James Phillips

Managing Director

I am the Managing Director of our Zurich office, and one of the first employees to help launch Artorius in 2014. As well as managing a team focused on UK, European and Middle Eastern clients, I thoroughly enjoy working closely with my own clients, whom I’ve built strong long-lasting relationships during my 30+ year career in Wealth Management.

I previously worked at Lloyds Private Banking for 24 years, relocating to Switzerland with the Bank in 2007. I joined Credit Suisse helping grow their UK team as Director specialising in non-domiciled UK based clients, I then joined Artorius where I have thoroughly enjoyed helping to build the business we have today. My strong belief in putting clients first in everything we do, resonates through Artorius. I enjoy balancing a deep knowledge of investment and tax planning with my clients and their families firmly in mind, often involving younger family members as part of the wealth education, something we feel is so important in today’s world.

My pride and joy are my two young children, both of whom are fluent in French! I enjoy my winter weekends in the mountains on my snowboard, and summers by the lakes, attempting to translate French wine labels.
