Our principals

For more than 25 years, Sogeni has put its leading expertise in genealogy and estate law at the service of financial institutions and legal professions.

Sogeni offers its expertise and skills to financial institutions, legal professions and individuals.

Banks and Insurers

Sogeni is the partner of choice in Switzerland for resolving your cases of dormant assets in compliance with the Swiss Banking Act and the Swiss Banking Association’s NARILO guidelines

Dormant accounts require significant management efforts by the financial institution concerned and pose reputational risks. Since 2015, the NARILO guidelines of the Swiss Banking Association have also made it mandatory to actively search for customers whose contact has been lost.
 

Unprofessional search may be unsuccessful or have serious consequences, including the breach of bank secrecy.

 

Since 1994, Sogeni has been assisting Banks and Insurances in the resolution of unclaimed property cases with a success rate of over 95% assured by

  • the experience and reliability of our investigators
  • our international network of correspondents
  • the strict protection of bank secrecy in our missions
  • an appropriate and proportionate pricing model, in line with the recommendations of the NARILO directives
