Landlocked in Central Europe but with legislative freedom, Switzerland is the epitome of connected independence.
As a signatory to The Hague Convention, Switzerland ratified the Law applicable to Trusts and their Recognition in 2007, allowing clients who wish to appoint Swiss trustees the freedom to choose the governing law of their trust from any relevant trust jurisdiction.
In appointing a Swiss Trustee, clients gain access to the reassuring quality and high regulatory standards applied by Swiss regulation and infrastructure, its accessibility via its strong global travel links and the convenience of overlapping time zones with the Americas and Far East. Switzerland represents the best of excellence, stability and innovation- built on 250-years of reputation as a wealth industry leader.
Geneva and Zurich offices
We understand that, to be a specialist in trusts, succession and family office services, is to have a wide knowledge base. With 16 languages spoken across our Swiss offices, diversity is at the forefront of our entrepreneurial, multi-cultural team. Our client base spans the globe; their geographical diversity is rivalled only by the great variety of assets we administer for them. They benefit from our combined experience and qualifications across a broad spectrum, including private banking, legal, finance and marketing.
Being part of a large Group means that we have the resource to keep our finger firmly on the pulse of regulatory compliance, nevertheless, our operational structure gives us independence to offer bespoke services. This autonomy allows us to make quick decisions and maintain the freedom to build relationships across an extensive network, which includes working closely with qualified tax practitioners, both in-house and externally, to connect our clients with on-demand advice.
We match our clients’ enthusiasm for exploring new avenues and accompany them and their families on their wealth creation and preservation journeys. Plainly speaking, we aim to bring them peace of mind by reducing future uncertainty.
