A Swiss Trust Company has the capability to earn tremendous profits by acting as an agent for the processing of Visa, MasterCard and American Express receipts for its clients and subsidiaries. Banks typically charge between 2.5% and 5% “commissions” on processing and even greater rates for what are considered high risk industries.

The actual percentage agreed upon is negotiable throughout the relationship but there are a few determining factors:

Pre- Determined Industry Profile

Each industry is supplied with a code that associates the risk factor for chargebacks which will determine processing rates and potential reserve requirements.
