A US or Canadian client chooses a custodian in collaboration with a Swiss wealth manager and gives the wealth manager a discretionary mandate with a limited power of attorney to manage the account (or an advisory mandate) held with the custodian.
Swiss wealth managers may collaborate with several Swiss and/or US and Canadian custodians, the choice is yours.
