Ersel represents in Italy one of the main banking groups with totally private and independent structure. The strong commitment of the founders' families is an element of continuity that demonstrates the trust in the present and future potential of the group.




A story started in 1936

Studio Giubergia was formed by Giuseppe Giubergia, who broke with the family jewellery tradition to take the path of finance. In a small but not insignificant market like that of Turin, in a period in which the new banking law had redesigned the roles and functions of the national credit system and the omens of war did not instil people with optimism for the future, families and businesses needed professionals capable of managing investments with a view to retention.

After the war, Renzo, Giuseppe’s son, an engineering graduate, in turn becomes a stockbroker and joins the company, where, from the outset, he was and always has been an “engineer”, supported by his brother-in-law Bruno Argentero, today Vice-President of the Group.


Merger with Studio Treves

In 1965, with the merger with Studio Treves, among the most renowned stockbrokers at the time, which was searching for someone to entrust with its prestigious and loyal customers at the moment of withdrawal, the relationship was strengthened with a customer segment which is still a reference one today.


First Ersel team is created

In 1976, when Guido Giubergia, on completion of his studies in economics, starts to work at the company following a period of specialisation in the United States, the first Ersel team is created. The company grew in organisational terms and the first office opened in Milan.


Growth guided by a forward-looking vision

The unique feature of Ersel was the choice of asset management as its core business and, indeed, this special focus on private customers allowed it to be a trailblazer on the emerging investment funds front. The intuition to gamble in this field marked a real turning point in the volume of business and the shift from an “artisan” activity, so to speak, to a genuine company.

Sogersel, now Ersel Asset Management, created to manage Fondersel, was the first Italian mutual fund company registered at the Bank of Italy in 1983. The investment fund sector became a fundamental part of the company’s work, with significant and constant development.


Fondersel is created

In 1984 the mutual fund, Fondersel, was set up, which would be followed in later years by other mutual funds offering different specialisations.


Giubergia Warburg Sim is created

Giubergia Warburg was established in 1992 on the back of an agreement with prestigious London bank Warburg Securities, a joint venture dedicated to brokerage activities, especially on behalf of foreign banks and large financial institutions. Ersel perfects its brokerage expertise on a much broader and more modern scale, acquires new customers all over the world, is able to develop its knowledge of the markets and further improve the quality of the service offered.


Hedge Fund

Ersel Hedge SGR, now merged into Ersel Asset Management SGR, is one of the first Italian companies authorised to manage and place hedge funds. In 2003 Hedgersel was founded, the first Italian direct fund.


Tax shield

In the three different editions of 2001, 2003 and 2010 of the Tax Shield, Ersel played a leading role and handled over one thousand repatriation transactions for a total value of over 1.3 billion euro. The customary needs of entrepreneurs and families with large assets and the extreme attention to confidentiality reward this historic boutique at the expense of more well-known brands.


New headquarters

In 2003, Ersel moves into the impressive building in Ceriana, Piazza Solferino 11, Turin.


Online SIM

Online SIM is acquired, a securities brokerage company today fintech platform market leader in Italy to buy online funds.


New branch in London

In 2011 Ersel Gestion Internationale inaugurated a new operating branch in London, mainly to consolidate the professional network with the most prestigious investment houses.


Simon and Nomen Fiduciaria

Simon Fiduciaria and Nomen Fiduciaria are acquired in 2015; the Ersel fiduciary hub is established, for the administration of well-structured and complex capital assets. Simon Fiduciaria  incorporated Nomen Fiduciaria on 1 January 2023.


Banca Albertini

In 2018 the hystoric milanese bank, foundend by Isidoro Albertini, makes its entry in Ersel Group. Giubergia and Albertini, names that have marked the history of Piazza Affari, join forces in an operation that responds to synergies and affinity. The union with Banca Albertini increases Ersel's position as the leading independent group in private banking in Italy, offering a complete and highly specialized range of services and products.


Wealth management in Luxembourg

In 2019 international wealth management activity is centralized in its headquarters in Luxembourg.


Ersel becomes a bank

On 1 January 2022, the merger of Ersel Sim and Banca Albertini was completed; Ersel SpA, the new parent bank, was born. During the year, the bank transferred the activities of the Lombard capital to the prestigious historic building in Via Caradosso, purchased in 2018, which is the subject of a complete renovation.
