Throughout our history, our clients and our range of services have continued to grow. Today, we offer professional expertise in various required areas with one mission: protecting your financial security.
The Arkion Group was founded in 2001 in Geneva by Eric Halff, chartered accountant and private banker.
In 2003, our holding company Arksys SA was created in Fribourg, and in the same year, Arkion Limited was born in London. In 2005, Pierre Gritti and his team joined the Arkion group to strengthen our tax department.
The following year saw the creation of Arkion Trustees (NZ) Limited, whose central purpose was to set up New Zealand Trusts, and Arkion (Hong Kong) Limited, to support and serve the needs of our clients in Asia. Our Swiss trust company, Arkion Trustees SA, was created in 2008 in Fribourg.
In 2014, we opened offices in Dubai to be able to support our clients active in the Middle East. The Group has also increased its presence in Hong Kong in 2014 by joining forces with a local company, Interglobe, creating the joint venture ArkGlobe Limited, specialising in the Chinese market.
In 2018, to respond to growing customer demand, our Group launched Arkion Corp. in Wyoming, USA. With an increasingly global reach, we are now in a position to set up Trusts under US law and to support your activities across the Atlantic.
Beginning of 2020, we forged a strategic partnership with Daniel Mijic, who is an international expert in the field of wealth planning for 20 years having a professional footpring spanning Liechtenstein and Hong Kong. Thus, Daniel is the Managing Director and Branch Principal of our Asian office in Hong Kong.
The year 2020 has finally seen Arkion take on a new dimension, with the arrival of two new outstanding partners. The addition of Jérôme Zanus Fortès, from Advaltis Partners, and Alain Jacot will strengthen the continuity of our well-established multi-family office, while further fostering its development on a global scale.
Both Jacot, a tax specialist in the real estate and real estate funds industries, and Zanus Fortès, a renowned advisor with more than thirty years of experience in wealth planning and family structure organisation with the Advaltis Partners team, will consolidate our multidisciplinary knowledge in the fiduciary, corporate & family office sectors.
