Rhone High Value Asset Services is a part of leading boutique trust company Rhone. Rhone’s 30-year heritage stems from being part of the Pictet Group, a Geneva-based financial institution which is one of the leading independent wealth and asset managers in Europe. Rhone and Rhone High Value Asset Services are now fully independent and owner managed. Rhone manages a relatively small number of structures with total assets in excess of CHF 35 billion. Together with a professional indemnity insurance cover of CHF 100 million, this provides Rhone with financial stability that distinguishes us from our competitors.

Rhone’s mission is to create tailor-made and innovative solutions founded on sound expertise and a disciplined approach. Rhone High Value Asset Services shares this expert and disciplined philosophy, tying together the wider group’s experience in trusts, wealth management and succession planning with our particular focus on the various asset classes within your portfolio. By applying the same rigour and by approaching each asset with the same care we ensure that you can enjoy what you put your heart into without having to worry about the potential heartache of ownership. 

Ownership brings with it a large number of considerations, from the overarching ownership structure to the day-to-day operational aspects. Our team – and our expert partners – ensure that these details are taken care of for you.
