What is Concierge Service
Whilst concierge is derived from the Latin word ‘conservus’ which translates to servant, the term and meaning has changed over time and this service is now used in many industries like business, travel, education, medicine, lifestyle and a lot more.
Concierge service has expanded to represent a wide range of personalised services that include from hotel, restaurant and flight reservations to investment opportunities and financial & wealth planning.
Concierge service has become a one-stop shop for financial, lifestyle and business advisory personalised assistance; an end-to-end service committed to accommodate the needs of the client.
A concierge company provides customers differentiated, tailor-made services, creating a trusted partner relationship that falls outside the traditional financial services relationship. This level of specialized offering allows clients to be connected to experts across a variety of products & services leading to a highly personalized and exclusive service.
