Fiduciary Services

“Fiducia” means trust in Latin. In modern times fiduciary services usually refer to those services provided by a person or a company known as the trustee, who has the right to represent and manage the assets of the client for certain legal purposes within the scope of the specified fiduciary duties. Such duties include various obligations and generally end with the transfer of the fiduciary assets after a certain period of time back to the client or to a third-party, the assignee of the client.

The fiduciary services provided by Rainier AG can be defined as management, custody and protection services for client’s property or money. Our fiduciary services can also be defined as trustee agent services in Switzerland and internationally where permitted. Our duties as fiduciary agents dictate first and foremost that all actions are to be performed for the advantage of our beneficiary.

Among the fiduciary services we provide are:

  • nominee director services;
  • asset custodian services;
  • escrow services,

Nominee shareholder services in Switzerland

Swiss companies must have at least one shareholder, who is required to make certain information available to the public. Rainier can act as nominee shareholder, thus protecting the identity of the owner. Rainier, as the Swiss nominee shareholder, will provide all the required information according to the Commercial Code. In order to appoint Rainier as a nominee shareholder, the beneficial owner and the fiduciary agent sign a Declaration of Trust containing all the duties and powers attributed to Rainier, as fiduciary. In Switzerland, contracting a nominee shareholder is often carried out in connection with contracting a nominee director.

Nominee director services in Switzerland

The Swiss Corporate Governance Code allows a company to appoint a nominee director, such as may be arranged by Rainier AG, to represent the company in relation to third parties. The nominee director will also be required to disclose certain information with the Commercial Register in Switzerland. The nominee director will represent the company’s director without actually controlling the business’ activities, bank accounts or any other managerial duties. It is also simpler to appoint a nominee director in Switzerland by drafting a power of attorney. The duties of the nominee director will end upon the expiration of the power of attorney, if it is issued for a limited period of time.

Asset custodian services

Rainier AG offers access to a wide array of asset custodian services in Switzerland and elsewhere where permitted by local laws and regulations. Be it precious metals, coins or currency, important documentation, digital data storage devices, marketable securities or precious works of art and other family heirlooms, our specialists arrange custody services for the clients with the world’s most reputable banking and other appropriate institutions and ensure worry-free safe-keeping and smooth retrieval and conveyance procedures with the highest levels of privacy and respective insurance.

Escrow Services

We offer documents, cash and portable high-value objects escrow services for private securities-collateralized lending transactions as well as buy/sell deals involving stocks, works of art and high-value jewelry. The superior reliability of our custodian banks as well as available additional third-party insurance for select contracts combined with the integrity of the underlying Swiss legal system provide for some of the most dependable escrow arrangements in the world.

Please, contact your private wealth manager for more details.
