How to protect your assets
under Swiss jurisdiction
Switzerland remains today what it has always been – the premier
financial destination for international investments. This is why many of our clients consider Switzerland
as a key element in their overall investment strategy, and why they are interested in personal holding
structures, which enable them having a portion of their assets “live” in Switzerland.
Personal holding structure
Any monies and assets that you have earned during your lifetime, you obviously want to see them protected
from creditors’ groundless claims and bankruptcy proceedings (MB GROUP:
in the absence of a fraudulent conveyance!).
Due to economical and political instability in your country
residence, you may wish to protect your assets by keeping
them under Swiss law and Swiss jurisdiction.
For these purposes we assist you in setting up a Swiss holding company,
while you contribute your money and assets (those which can be valued, i.e.
stocks, bonds, shares, mutual and hedge fund interests, real estate, etc.)
in the company’s capital.
Once contributed, all these assets, as before, may be controlled and
managed by you, as being the owner and managing director of a Swiss holding
company; at the same time, the assets are held in the name of a Swiss
holding company (i.e. separate legal entity) and therefore, are free from
any claims directed against you in person.
Due to the investor anonymity, provided by Swiss corporations (AG / SA), your name as an owner of such Swiss
holding company will never be disclosed. At the same time, your name as a managing director will be publicly
known, what is not always desired.
We are ready to assist you avoiding this, through a so-called fiduciary agreement between you and a Swiss
director, who will treat your Swiss holding company with absolute discretion and in accordance with your
instructions, while the decision making remains in your hands.
Another option is to use the existing holding structure, already created by us (shelf company). It enables
you to contribute your funds and/or assets, thus increasing the registered share capital of the company.
Unlike banks, we will then manage your funds and assets in accordance with your instructions, under condition
of anonymity, while dividends earned will be regularly paid to you as shareholder.
Needless to say that holding companies in Switzerland benefit from reductions in corporate income tax at both
cantonal and federal levels.
We provide personalized assistance in obtaining tax rulings for your holding
You relationship with us is covered by Swiss privacy and confidentiality laws. Our commitment to you from
MB GROUP is total and complete: we will never disclose information concerning your dealings
with us to any third party. The only exception being of course, an order from Swiss court.
We at MB GROUP SWITZERLAND AG welcome the opportunity to explore with you the world of Swiss financial
security and protection from creditors and bankruptcy (see more at Asset Protection in Switzerland).
