What to expect from us

Through our interdisciplinary approach and our global presence, we understand not only how international foundations need to be set up, but also what this means from a legal and tax point-of-view.

The foundation generally represents an independent asset that is made available by a philanthropist for a specific permanent purpose. The founder withdraws certain parts or all of his or her assets from the direct power of disposal and dedicates them to the foundation. The foundation has its own legal status and is the bearer of its own rights and obligations.

The charitable foundation is an excellent planning instrument for persons who have neither descendants nor other close relatives whom they would like to appoint as heirs or persons who wish to make their assets available to the general public for other reasons.

Should you be considering setting up a foundation, we are the right partner to realise your plans. You propose the idea and we understand the path to its success. We take into account your personal environment as well as the economic and legal framework and are able to guide you through all phases of the process thanks to our close ties with banks and authorities.
