Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.

Welcome to the One and O­nly website dedicated to the trust in Switzerland!
With more than o­ne third of the world’s total assets in management, Switzerland can hardly be discounted in the area of trusts. Yet, there are no Swiss trusts, because Switzerland is a civil-law country and thus ignores the common-law distinction between legal and equitable ownership.
My website aims to shed the light o­n trusts in Switzerland.
