05.10.17: SATC marks 10 years and breakthrough in Swiss regulations

The Swiss Association of Trust Companies (SATC) was created in 2007 in an effort to contribute to the professional and ethical development of the trust industry in Switzerland. Kecia Barkawi was founding president 2007 to 2012 and VALUEworks has been a member since 2007. The primary objective of SATC is to encourage the growth of the trust industry while upholding a high standard of quality, integrity and professionalism. After a decade, the SATC finally welcomes the inclusion of trustees in the Federal Act on Financial Institutions (FinIA), a new law that will be enacted at the start of 2018 or the course of 2019.
