When he speaks, Heinrich Weber sounds like a psychotherapist. But his profession involves addressing the worries of people who might normally be considered to have little to worry about. It's an area that Weber, 46, knows well. He has heard plenty of tales of woe from his super-rich clients.
"Those who were born rich have seen the dark side of wealth," says Weber, who is wearing a gold watch, a pinstriped suit and a pocket square, as he talks about his everyday life as a Swiss private banker. He isn't being ironic.
People worth hundreds of millions of Swiss francs, dollars or euros, says Weber, suffer from the "high expectations they are expected to fulfill."
