Meet citizenship and residence planners

Jean-Marie Mettraux - Owner

JM Conseil

Originally from the French part of Switzerland, I have been based in Zurich since 2006. After my master’s degree I started working for the Claims Resolution Tribunal of the Holocaust Victim Assets Litigation against Swiss Banks and other Swiss Entities. After this process was over and the assets redistributed, I started working for an international law boutique in Zurich specializing in cross-border tax service as a member of the US team that focuses on individuals and trusts with US tax problems. After a few years I was promoted to Director of a new US tax accounting firm I helped found. I managed the firm from the beginning with the partners and within 1.5 years developed it into a successful US tax firm before deciding to create my own company using my US and international compliance and tax knowledge.

Hangama Wanner, Founder & Managing Partner

KayHan Swiss

I was very young when we had to flee from Kabul, Afghanistan in the 80’s. After a journey filled with hardship, fear and struggle, I was fortunate to be raised and educated in Western Europe. It’s this experience, as well as having lived in Switzerland for many years that has shown me, first hand, how valuable personal freedom through citizenship and residency can be to somebody’s life.

That’s why I established KayHan Swiss. I provide people with solutions and choices, giving them the same possibilities and leading to a new destiny, a better future that they choose for themselves.
