What does the Search of Dormant Assets at Swiss Banks include?
This service allows you to search dormant assets at Swiss Banks to which you might be entitled as a beneficiary, with the assistance of our associates acting as your representatives before the Central Claims Office of the Swiss Banking Ombudsman (a Swiss governmental agency not affiliated with Dateas).
Anyone who credibly claims to be a customer or heir of a deceased or missing customer of a Swiss Bank but does not know the name of the Bank can ask the Central Claims Office of the Swiss Banking Ombudsman to make inquiries into dormant assets.
The search comprises all kinds of assets without contact (savings books, accounts including numbered and pseudonym accounts, custody accounts, safe-deposit boxes) with banks in Switzerland with a value of at least CHF 500.
In order to prepare the inquiry, our associates will get in personalized contact with you to gather more relevant information, a copy of your valid official document bearing photograph and copies of other documents needed for proving your legitimization as a claimant, such as the presumed bank-customer's death-certificate, the certificate of inheritance or similar document, etc.
Our associates will carry on all the needed efforts in order for your search to be successful.
The fee for this service is US$ 240, which includes the fee owed to the Swiss Banking Ombudsman.
If due to any reason the documents can not be submitted to the Swiss Banking Ombudsman, you'll receive your money back.
