Cultural Heritage

Finial has been an active supporter and contributor to Geneva's cultural heritage, through several initiatives, which Mr. Danial has been actively involved with. These projects usually aim to raise Geneva's profile as an international business and tourist destination.

Finial Capital brings to the table its vast experience of the hospitality industry and extended network of high profile personalities to achieve results that benefit the community as a whole.

Please see below for an example.

La Compagnie Générale de Navigation: Lake Geneva's Historic Fleet

Nearly 150 years old, the Compagnie Générale de Navigation ("CGN") operates a historic fleet of 19 vessels that transport passengers between 43 ports across Lake Geneva.

  • Since 1873, the CGN has been providing affordable transport to millions of passengers across various ports on Lake Geneva, both in Switzerland and in France. Some of the main stops are Geneva, Nyon, Lausanne, Montreux and Evian-Les-Bains
  • Five of the fleet's vessels have been in operation since the early 1900's and are powered with authentic steam engines. In addition, most of the vessels boast high quality on-board restaurants
  • The CGN transported more than 2.4 million passengers in 2019
  • A public/private partnership, the CGN ultimately seeks to increase Lake Geneva's attractiveness as a cultural and tourist destination, whilst providing affordable transport to every day commuters

Finial Capital's involvement in this initiative was a typical example of our participation in a project whereby results are not only measured with economic benchmarks but rather with the successful preservation and adaptation of our local cultural heritage to modern times.
