The former concept of private placement no longer applies to foreign funds, now any offering or advertising of foreign funds in Switzerland is considered distribution!
Foreign funds distributed to qualified investors in and from Switzerland do not require registration with the FINMA (Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority) but have to appoint a Swiss representative, and a Swiss paying agent (namely, a Swiss bank) no later than February 28th 2015.
With our specialization in hedge funds, we can help you with all regulatory aspects. Choosing Fundbase Fund Services as your fund representative in Switzerland means you will be able to actively market your funds directly to qualified investors with limited restrictions.
