The Swiss financial market is extremely active in the distribution of funds. It is one of the biggest markets in Europe. For this reason, a very high number of foreign-based investment funds are registered and distributed in Switzerland. T&CO advises the providers of such funds on how to obtain all of the necessary approvals from FINMA and helps them to choose the best service providers (in particular, a representative and paying agent) for their particular needs so as to distribute their funds in Switzerland effectively.
Our firm also helps fund providers to establish a distribution network in Europe. In our experience, it is important to analyse the fund provider’s short, medium and long-term objectives (country and types of target investors, methods used to promote funds, objectives and financial resources deployed, etc.) with a view to defining a coherent, effective and properly tailored distribution strategy.
