Understanding the customer’s needs and experiences is one of our core operating principles. We do not apply a standard approach for achieving customer goals, each solution is found by thoroughly analysing each situation individually and following the global trends in the industry.
Here our clients find experienced professionals who manage their assets, as well as trustworthy partners who care about achieving their goals, growing their capital, ensuring the welfare of their family and further success of their businesses.
The highest level of customer service goes beyond finance. It is capital management and investment structuring that exceeds expectations both in terms of product quality and the ability to delve into detail.
Signet Bank’s target customers are tax residents of Latvia and other EU and OECD countries: private customers, entrepreneurs and senior executives whose net worth, according to the information available to the Bank, exceeds EUR 100,000, as well as tax residents of other countries whose investable capital exceeds EUR 1 million and/or whose annual income, according to the information available to the Bank, exceeds EUR 250,000. The Bank’s target customers also include legal entities, medium-large sized companies operating in Latvia and other Baltic countries, and companies, SPVs, investment vehicles and similar companies, the beneficiaries of which meet the criteria for private customers specified above.
Our relationship is based on mutual trust and individual approach, and these are our main values. We devote our time to each client in order to understand and recognize their personality as an investor, as a business leader, and as a family member.
We pride ourselves on being able to find individual solutions to preserve and multiply the funds of each of our clients, yet we strongly reject any suspicious transfer or questionable transaction. We are sure that each of our clients deserves a bank with an unchallenged reputation.
Signet Bank was founded in 1991 and is one of the first banks of independent Latvia. Since 2013, the bank has focused its strategy on servicing entrepreneurs and their companies, with an emphasis on high-quality capital management and structuring investment projects.
When addressing the needs and wishes of each of our clients, we are looking for the overall solution: both by providing individual services to their family and by offering optimal solutions to the client’s business.
Signet Bank shareholders are 57% Latvian and 35% United States investors.
The bank is located in Riga, Latvia, supervised by the Financial and Capital Market Commission (FCMC) and the European Central Bank (ECB).
Signet Bank is led by a skilled team with international experience in managing financial institutions.

The company was founded in 2010, and its team comprises investment professionals with years of experience in European and Eastern European financial markets. In addition to working with individual client portfolios, Signet Asset Management Latvia also manages a third-level private pension plan and an investment fund Signet Bond Fund.
I was confident in the professional approach of Signet Bank’s team and the high bar they hold in terms of quality, which we at CleanR Group were also able to verify during our cooperation on the arrangement of the Group’s bond issue. We are truly pleased that together we have achieved excellent results in attracting local investors specifically – the absolute majority (85%) of the Group’s bondholders are from Latvia! The ability to delve into the specifics of the industry and the company, a nuanced understanding of capital market instruments and the ability to find the most effective solutions for each client characterize the work Signet Bank is doing.
“It is always a pleasure to work with the staff of the Corporate and Investment Department of Signet Bank – using their high proficiency, they find solutions that provide both financing for the growth of our
company and attractive investment opportunities for investors. It is encouraging to see that the activities of Signet Bank demonstrate the prospects for the development of the Latvian capital market, and the
proposed solutions confirm this. The bond issues arranged by Signet Bank helped to boost our company’s recognition in the Latvian capital markets. We are currently taking the next step and planning our initial
public offering (IPO). When looking for a cooperation partner, we always try to find a professional in their field – Signet Bank is exactly that.”
“Signet Bank excellently arranged the issue and listing of ELKO Group bonds on Nasdaq Riga First North alternative securities market. The issue provided the necessary working capital to remain competitive and
continue to grow. It should be noted that the issue was arranged in a relatively short period of time and negotiations with investors resulted in demand 2.5 times higher than available.”
“We have a highly efficient and flexible cooperation with Signet Bank. We get answers to our everyday questions and appropriate solutions for our tasks, the terms of cooperation are logical and clear. Even in more
complex cases, we have noted the bank’s commitment to get to the core of the issue rather than providing a formal solution. The bank works with a clear vision of development, which corresponds to EKJU’s vision
and makes our cooperation successful.”
“With Signet Bank’s funding and support, we were able to continue the development of our project at Exupery International School (EIS). Now a new building has been built and equipped for EIS, where senior
students study and live comfortably. Now Latvia has its first international boarding school, where young people will study according to the world’s two best-known and most demanded secondary school programs.
Cooperation with Signet Bank has contributed to the improvement of the international education project of Exupery International School – this will not only open opportunities for international education for
students in Latvia, but will also open Latvia to high school students from all over the world.”
Signet Bank builds its activities with sustainability principles in mind, gradually integrating ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) considerations into the company’s operations.
We are united by the belief that culture and art provide not only aesthetic pleasure, but also unlock our intellectual and creative potential. Signet Bank is a socially responsible entity, and it is important for us to provide support for cultural and artistic events of importance for society.
Since 2015 we have been gathering an international collection of contemporary art, which includes paintings, sculptures, graphics and mixed media works. The bottom line of the collection is the courage to abandon clichés and the desire to be bold. The interiors of the Bank are highlighted – by many works from this collection, supplementing them so organically and sharing with our guests the emotions we experience in contact with art.
Italian artist Michele Giangrande has an extravagant, sophisticated, conceptualist personality; he is inspired by archaic, primitive things yet driven to reflect on politics and other topical matters. He seems to have never-ending energy and an urge to create, but when I asked Michele about where this energy comes from, he answered paraphrasing Descartes “Crĕo ergo sum” which means “I create therefore I am”.
