Established in 1953, and headquartered in Luxembourg, SGG is a leading independent Trust & Services provider in
Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Curaçao with c.550 professionals. It offers a comprehensive range of value-added services, providing tailored solutions primarily focused on corporate and institutional clients and the family offices segment.

After 5 years of successful collaboration with management, we believe SGG is now ready for its next phase of development with a new shareholder and we are pleased that Astorg has agreed to continue that journey with management.”

Serge Krancenblum, CEO of SGG said: “I would like to thank Cobepa for its support in developing SGG over the last five years. On behalf of SGG’s management team and employees, we welcome Astorg as our new main shareholder. With Astorg’s support, we aim to accelerate SGG’s growth through the launch of new services and further expansion into new jurisdictions.”
