Dating back to 1890, the Julius Baer Group was first founded by Ludwig Hirschhorn and Theodor Grob. In 1896, Joseph Michael Uhl and Julius Bär joined the company, when Theodor Grob left. Julius Bär took ownership of the bank in 1901 and his sons joined the company as partners, thus making it a family business with Julius’s off-spring remaining active in the business as shareholders right up to 2009. Since 2005, the group acquired a number of smaller financial institutions and so, boosted its strength in the industry.
