About Us

The Group

Alpadis is an independent and privately-owned group, founded in Switzerland in 2005, by a small team of seasoned experts in wealth planning.

True to our roots, we have carried the Swiss quality label across various Asian jurisdictions, whilst ensuring consistent high-quality services and enhanced cross-border capabilities for our international clients.

We are a truly independent fiduciary services provider. We choose the best specialists to work hand in hand to maximise your success and our services.

We work closely with corporate clients, entrepreneurs, business owners, High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs) and their family offices, who consult us for our expertise, credibility and ultimately, out of trust.

We pride ourselves on upholding the highest standards of professionalism, conduct and ethics across all jurisdictions in which we operate, and all the different services we offer.

Our specialists consist of Certified Public Accountants, Company Secretaries, Lawyers and Tax Advisers, many of whom are members of national and international professional bodies.
