Roberto Verga, Founder and Honorary Chairman
The Veco Group was set up in Lugano on October 3, 1973 and initially known as Fiduciaria Verga. Its founder is Roberto Verga, who is now the Group ’s honorary president. Thanks to its collaboration with the main banks, Fiduciaria Verga rapidly expanded to specialize in Trust, International Taxation and Corporate Management.
With a view to diversifying the business, Veco Invest, the group's asset management company, was established in 1988. In the 1990s, The Veco Group widened its vision by opening offices in different European countries, subsequently in Dubai and Hong Kong.
The global economic crisis of 2008 and the resulting recession saw Switzerland adopt a new regulation by wavering banking secrecy; a factor that led the Group to restructuring under the new regulations. The trust sector and asset management - the two founding pillars of Veco – were strengthened, while new ways were opened up to diversify their activities.
In 2016, BlueStar Investment Managers SA, a fund management company serving banks and institutional clients, was founded. Its partnerships and acquisitions went on to grow, such as its recent participation in Tradefidam SA, a real estate trust company in Lugano.
In 2019, the Group’s image underwent an overhaul, keeping the original name and colours but looking to the future and highlighting its historical values of confidentiality, independence, integrity and familiarity.
