The company said it would compensate clients with a discretionary management mandate -- meaning that managers at Notz Stucki decided how to invest their assets -- with up to 120 million Swiss francs ($103.2 million).
Clients who specifically asekd for access to Madoff will not be compensated however, a spokesman for Notz Stucki told Reuters.
The spokesman said the compensation payments would be held by a 'special entity', but that the legal structure of the deal was yet to be finalized.
The spokesman aslo said the wealth manager had taken its lead from Union Bancaire Privee and from Santander unit Optimal, two Geneva-based companies that have made similar offers to clients nursing Madoff losses.
