We need to appoint Trustees

“Confidence through strong relationships.”

  • Swiss Bank Trustee Relationships
  • International Trustee Offices
  • Paying Agent Services

As the Bond Issue closes, it is a requirement for the Issuer to appoint a Trustee (or Paying Agent). The Trustee will be a recognised Bank, chosen by the Issuer. The role of the Trustee is to administer debt service payments made by the Issuer to the bondholders.

The Trustee may also be called upon should the bond issue ever go into default. The role of the Trustee in this instance will be to represent the bondholders in any remedial negotiations and proceedings against the Issuer in the recovery of their investments.

Having a well-known international bank as the Trustee is not only important to convey security and comfort to the bondholders and potential bond purchasers, it is also important to have the correct bank and a strong relationship with them. Strong bank relationships are an important factor in any commercial banking operation. The issuance of bonds is of course no exception.

ICS have relationships with many international banks that are experienced as acting as Trustees for bond issues of all types and values and in many different jurisdictions in many different currencies. By ensuring you discuss your requirements with us in confidence, can equally assure you that the correct Trustee relationship can be installed for you as the Bond Issuer.

Here at IntaCapital Swiss, as well as Trustee and Paying Agent services, we can also provide Investment Banking and Bond Counsel services. Please feel free to discuss your requirements and circumstances with us where our experienced partners will be able to make the necessary introductions to high-level relationships within international banks based here in Switzerland and throughout the world.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak:

In light of the outbreak of the Coronavirus, we wish to assure all our clients and potential customers that we remain open for business as usual.

Given the travel restrictions being imposed against certain nations and restricted travel to and from Switzerland, we have implemented permissions from our sources and provider groups to conduct meetings over video links and to exchange legal documents via DHL and email. This process will remain in place during the travel restrictions and we would like to assure all existing clients, customers and new applicants that they should not experience any significant delays during this time.

Whilst Switzerland has now entered the removal stage of the lockdown procedure, we are deeply understating that many other countries are not yet at that position to do the same. As a result, we have implemented existing Swiss procedures to undertake our interviews, underwriting and identification procedures online - as many other dynamic Swiss Banks have been using for the last few years.

We are now adopting a remote underwriting mode.
