When selecting a company to manage your assets, it is not only recommended to take into account the aspects of personal trust and professional skills but to also give consideration to the legal and political environment of the location of the asset management team.
Switzerland is not only one of the oldest, direct democracies in the world which ensures its political stability, in international comparison it also has a low public debt. In terms of gross domestic product, in 2014 the debt in Germany was almost 75% and in the U.S. 106%, whereas in Switzerland it was at a moderate 48%.
Reasonable national budgets, an acceptable tax rate and the international neutrality of Switzerland and the integrity of its actions are, even in uncertain times, a guarantee for privacy and discretion. This understandable desire for security is not for concealing untaxed assets but for the management of risks and the desire to protect assets over the long term.
Switzerland stands out as a location due to its liberal and economically friendly climate, and has been the world leader in international asset management for decades, with a total of around CHF 3,000 million in managed assets for foreign clients.
Switzerland is a haven for private assets, not least because of years of experience and the international private wealth management network. We believe that Switzerland is the ideal location for us as a company and for you as a wealthy private client.
