Oligo provides clients with a comprehensive solution package to ensure full compliance with FinSA.
FUND REPRESENTATION IN SWITZERLAND
Oligo are able to provide the representation services for funds seeking both qualified and non-qualified investors. The Swiss Collective Investment Schemes Act (CISA 120) concerns foreign fund providers distributing in Switzerland to qualified and non-qualified investors. Those funds are required by law to appoint a Swiss representative and a paying agent and must ensure correct legal documentation is in place and that it remains up to date.
CAPITAL INTRODUCTION EVENTS
Oligo’s capital introduction events are held quarterly and are aimed at fund managers to meet with Swiss investors. These events are held in Geneva at a centrally located hotel.
PROVISION OF COMPLETE SWISS GOVERNANCE
In addition to the services above, Oligo’s legal partners are ready to assist you, should you require advice from a Swiss law office. With Oligo as your fully comprehensive Swiss provider, clients benefit from a first-class level of governance for all Swiss-related matters, a continuous regulatory overview, and a simplified process that reduces costs and time to market.
