Inheritance queries/search for assets

If you have inherited or suspect that assets are held with DZ PRIVATBANK (Schweiz) AG, we would ask you to submit the following documents:  

  • Inheritance documents (will, death certificate, certificate of inheritance, grant of probate, if any)
  • Passport with a photo (for all heirs, including the executor/estate administrator, if any)

The original or an officially certified copy of these documents must be submitted.

We regret that we cannot provide you with any information, positive or negative, without the above documents.

If you would like to extend a general search to all Swiss banking institutions, we would suggest that you contact the Swiss banking ombudsman. Persons who suspect that assets to which they are entitled are held with an unknown bank in Switzerland can order a search through the office of the banking ombudsman against payment of a small processing fee. The questionnaire required for the search is available from the following address:

Swiss Banking Ombudsman 
P.O. Box 1818
CH-8021 Zurich
