The trust is used in a similar way to the foundation for the long-term safeguarding of family assets and estate planning. However, it is not a legal entity, but rather a contractual legal relationship concerning trust assets (trust property), which are transferred by a settlor to a trustee. The trust property must be kept separate from the assets of the trustee.
Trusts are suitable for charitable, social, cultural or similar purposes. There is no minimum amount required. The assets of the trust are only subject to a flat minimum income tax of 1,800 Swiss francs.
