Trafina’s origins lie in the Hansa AG. Hansa AG was founded in 1930 as a financial company by Hans A. Opel and was intended to manage the funds which he received through the sale of Opel. The investment was mainly in corporate finance, real estate and marketable securities. In 1989 the asset management business was outsourced and the name Trafina was created. Trafina converted into a bank in 1991.

In 1999, Hansa AG sold a 30 percent stake to Sabine Duschmalé-Oeri, a descendant of Fritz Hoffmann-La Roche and co-owner of the pharmaceutical company Hoffmann-La Roche.

Few banks do not disclose their Annual Reports to the public. Therefore, we collected reliable information on a best-efforts basis. We renounced to collecting information from unreliable sources. Until today, Swiss law does not impose the duty of publication to the banks as it is the case in the EU. Therefore, for a few banks, the information from the annual reports was not summarized and published.
There are some smaller banks without a rating. It makes no sense for them to apply for a rating because they are not involved in the lending business. If the bank has no rating, it’s not automatically a negative point. There are excellent private banks without a rating.
