US taxpayers can settle their tax liabilities by participating in a voluntary disclosure process. Our team draws on a network of experts to help you find answers to the many complex questions involved, and provide the guidance and advice you need to resolve your tax situation.

3. Investment proposal

We usually provide a first, basic outline of an individual investment strategy to give you an impression of what we can do for you. This is a good starting point for further discussion and further refinement.

4. Certify identity

To comply with international regulations and protect you from identity theft, we ask you for the following documents as proof of your identity:

  • Copy of a passport showing both photo and signature
  • Recent utility bill or bank statement, verifying your address

Both documents need to be notarized if sent by mail.

5. Asset management agreement

Along with the account opening documents, we send you an individual investment management agreement via mail, e-mail or fax. This gives you information about how we safeguard and develop your wealth, as well as defining the measures we use to meet your needs and uphold your values within the investment strategy.
