How we help clients
Deciding on and implementing the appropriate structure to hold your wealth
After making a thorough analysis of your situation, we can help you choose and set up the appropriate structure to hold your assets. We have expertise in handling trusts, foundations, life assurance, investment funds and corporations.
Preparing for handing down wealth to the next generation
Passing on wealth to future generations can be a complex undertaking. Seeking independent advice can help provide clarity to the process. Our experience in advising clients on estate planning, combined with being a family-owned bank for over 200 years, have given us tremendous insight on how to successfully transfer a business, money and other types of assets to your heirs.
General tax and legal issues
Staying ahead of tax and legal changes to ensure the best possible plan
Nowadays, tax and legal issues have become increasingly complex as members of a family might reside in different countries, have different citizenships or own real estate abroad. We constantly review international legislation such as double taxation treaties and private international law to stay ahead of changes and provide you with the best possible financing planning.
Helping you ensure a smooth transition when moving abroad
Relocation is a recurrent topic amongst our clients, and our experts are here to discuss and analyse the impact of such changes, including potential legal and tax-related issues that might arise from moving abroad. Thanks to our international network, we can help you navigate through these changes in many jurisdictions.
