Michael Fischer and Natalie Peter take a stand against the proposed introduction of a Swiss trust law

Michael Fischer and Natalie Peter explain in their article published in the Zurich newspaper NZZ the need for Switzerland to introduce an appropriate estate planning tool – but the right solution is not to copy common law trust law.

Against the background of the Swiss legislator currently discussing the option of creating a Swiss domestic trust law Natalie and Michael explain that Switzerland would be better served by adapting the home grown instruments of Foundation and Fiduciary Agreement, rather than importing a foreign species.
