Swiss Association of Trust Companies

The Swiss Association of Trust Companies (SATC) was established in July 2007 in an effort to contribute to the professional and ethical development of the trust industy in Switzerland.

The primary objective of SATC is to encourage the growth of the trust industry while upholding a high standard of quality, integrity and professionalism.

SATC further aims at building bridges with, and gaining recognition from, the Swiss government and other influential organisations.

SATC brings together entities that are active in the trust industry in Switzerland to facilitate the exchange of know-how, information and ideas on trust related matters. It is strengthening the position of the trust industry in Switzerland by improving the reputation of trustee activities and increasing the general understanding of the trust business. SATC initiated the original proposal for the regulation of Swiss trustees, which was published in November 2015.
