Why Switzerland?
Switzerland is an important fund domicile for institutional clients. Products offered exclusively to qualified investors benefit from various regulatory facilities such as a shortened licensing process and exemption from the requirement to issue a prospectus. In specific cases portfolio management can be delegated to the investor.

  • Contractual funds (FCP)
  • Swiss limited partnerships
