Webinar: AvelaLaw Fund-Roundtable on 22.2.2024 about the Limited Qualified Investor Fund Schweiz (L‑QIF)

Ave­laLaw Fund-Roundtable

Webi­nar about the Lim­it­ed Qual­i­fied Investor Fund (L‑QIF)

After an excep­tion­al­ly long pro­cess­ing peri­od, the Fed­er­al Coun­cil announced the final text of the Col­lec­tive Invest­ment Schemes Ordi­nance (CISO) on 31 Jan­u­ary, which flesh­es out the Col­lec­tive Invest­ment Schemes Act (CISA) already adopt­ed by Par­lia­ment at the end of 2021. At the same time, 1 March 2024 was set as the offi­cial start date for the new regulations.

This revi­sion of the law intro­duces a new fund cat­e­go­ry in Switzer­land, the Lim­it­ed Qual­i­fied Investor Fund (L‑QIF), which will only be acces­si­ble to qual­i­fied investors, but does not have to be autho­rised or approved by FIN­MA and is not sub­ject to pru­den­tial super­vi­sion. We address var­i­ous ques­tions, such as:

  • Have we now cre­at­ed a big bang here?
  • Is the legal frame­work of the L‑QIF lib­er­al and flex­i­ble enough to bring inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts to the mar­ket quick­ly? Or were we too hes­i­tant and missed out on gen­uine liberalisation?
  • What oppor­tu­ni­ties does the Lim­it­ed Qual­i­fied Investor Fund (L‑QIF) offer for asset man­age­ment in Switzer­land? Is the fund indus­try ready for the new prod­uct category?
  • Is there already demand for L‑QIFs? Why the restric­tive access reg­u­la­tions for L‑QIFs with prop­er­ty investments?
  • Are there any oth­er changes worth know­ing about as of 1 March 2024?

We dis­cuss the strengths, weak­ness­es and poten­tial appli­ca­tions of the L‑QIF and the new legal provisions
