Touchstone to attend STEP Alpine 16-17th Jan 2020

Touchstone are looking forward to attending the Swiss & Liechtenstein STEP Federation 4th Alpine Conference in Interlaken, 16-17 Jan at the start of what will be a significant year for the Swiss Trust and Estate planning industry.

This years’ agenda will naturally be somewhat focused on the introduction and implications of Swiss trust law, with new the Swiss Financial Institutions Act (“FinIA”) and the Swiss Financial Services Act (“FinSA”) coming into effect in Switzerland in January 2020. However there will be presentations on a wide range of key themes relevant to Switzerland and the broader international trust and estate planning community, in particular:

  • EU Economic Substance updates
  • Beneficial Ownership
  • Foundation law
  • Family governance

More information on the conference may be found here.

Touchstone’s Head of Sales, Paul Crichton, will be attending so please get in contact for a discussion or to arrange to meet pre, during or post the conference.
