Consilia is part of the Ganten Group (www.gantengroup.com). For private clients, it handles all aspects of trust and foundation formation and related services such as administration, accounting, tax returns and other client concerns. Together with its partner BWB Attorneys at Law Ltd (www.bwb.li), it can also ensure legal optimisation if desired.
The need for independent portfolio analyses for a large number of charitable-, family- and other foundations and trusts of the Ganten Group led to the establishment of this area of activity within Consilia Anstalt. Consilia, founded in 1975 and acting as a fully fledged trustee, has therefore focused on portfolio health checks and portfolio monitoring. The extensive benefits of this service are now also offered to third parties.
PRINCIPALITY OF LIECHTENSTEIN
The 300-year-old Principality of Liechtenstein lies nestled between Switzerland and Austria. It offers a very stable political, economic and legal environment for various private and business purposes. The number of jobs, especially within the strong financial centre and innovative high-tech industry, is almost equal to the number of 38,000 inhabitants.
Liechtenstein is a member of the European Economic Area and has had a Customs Treaty with Switzerland since 1923, which has created excellent opportunities for direct access to both Switzerland and the EU ("passporting").
