In reply to Silvio Keller's comment, he has made a statement regarding Swiss regulation which is factually incorrect. ANY company engaged in fiduciary business, including a "treuhand" accounting firm, is required to be registered with an SRO. It just so happens that there is a mandatory SRO for treuhands in Switzerland.

Again, any treuhand or trust company engaged in fiduciary activities MUST be registered with an SRO. Engaging in any form of fiduciary work without this registration can lead to prosecution.

not correct - the expression "trust company" used as an english translation for the GERMAN word "TREUHAND" doesn't mean the same thing

a "treuhand" hasn't to be a member of an sro as long as it's operations are limited to "simple" ACCOUNTING and/or TAX CONSULTING activities... and as long as a minimal turnover/number of client limit isn't exeeded

AND: as soon as such an entity is offering "trust" services it's in its own interest of mentioning the membership at one of the different sro-associations in the country

consequence: ASK YOUR SWISS PARTNER CONCERNING THEIR MEMBERSHIP IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO COOPERATIONG FOR CERTAIN ACTIVITIES... and avoid them if they refuse giving you the information you ask for... it's that simple!

take care

Hunter, the first thing to know is that there are no "trust companies" in Zug. Assuming you have never been there, there is nothing in Zug; small city with a few law and accounting firms, but plenty of charlatans trying to use Zug as the situs of their trust company. Second, Thalwil is a town just outside of Zurich; seeing a rep in Thalwil for a trust company in Zug should raise genuine questions about whether this trust company is a sham.

Real trust companies are required by Swiss law to be members of a self-regulating organization (SRO) supervised by the Swiss financial authority, FINMA. Find out if this "trust company" is a member of an SRO; I highly doubt it. If it is, give the SRO a call and find out when the trust company was last audited and what were the results of the audit. If you encounter problems, let the SRO know about all it.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
