Escrow and Corporate Trusts

LawTrust Swiss is your trusted partner.

Our range of services also covers the management of corporate trusts. Such corporate trusts are implemented via the temporary (99 year’s max.) ownership transfer of assets or rights in a dedicated estate managed by a trustee. Banks or debt funds require the setup of such trusts to efficiently secure credit repayment. It also provides corporate borrowers with better access to debt capital, especially when time is at a premium (Collateral Corporate Trusts). Alternatively, such transfers aim at monitoring the management of assets via a reputable third party manager for a wide variety of situations (family company shareholding issues, transition management needs, special account cash management, Real Estate SPV etc.) (Management Corporate Trusts).
