Launch of The Classic Car Trust

Fritz Kaiser, the Liechtenstein entrepreneur and financial services provider, together with his group of companies, launched the “The Classic Car Trust” initiative at the 2014 Mille Miglia. Under the motto “Aspirin and Champagne” this new sister company of “Kaiser Partner” has set up a Collectors’ Office to look after the administrative, financial and legal needs of classic car collectors, leaving them free to simply enjoy their passion. The Classic Car Trust has simultaneously launched a new mobile internet platform for classic car fans and aficionados, with innovative digital solutions such as the Classic Car Collector App for iPads.

Please visit the news section of The Classic Car Trust for news on classic cars as we will discontinue our Tourbook blog. It was great having you here – now, it’s time to move forward to new, even more interesting ventures!
