Marketing of hedge funds in Switzerland

Author

Abstract

Alternative investments and hedge funds in particular are now an integral part of the asset allocation process of Swiss asset managers and institutional investors. The existing legal and regulatory frameworks, as well as the practice of the Swiss supervisory authority, have allowed that evolution. Certain difficulties however remain, in particular in view of the narrow scope of the private placement rules and in the absence of any exemptions for accredited investors. In this context, the ongoing revision of the Act is a welcome development as it should improve the situation on both counts.
