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. THEVOZ Attorneys 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.
