a Swiss Federal Law on Collective Investment Institutions distinguishes between collective investment institutions with variable capital, that is, a contractual fund or an investment company with variable capital (SICAV) and Fixed Capital Collective Investment Institutions (SICAF).
At Foster Swiss, international and independent banking consultants, we have successfully incorporated different Variable Capital Investment Companies (SICAV), investment funds and collective savings structures in Switzerland, and in European jurisdictions, being able to legally circumvent some of the CNMV - FINMA provisions in savings and credit structures.
Please check the sections on Swiss financial companies and savings and credit companies on our website, especially those on FINMA-OAR-G.
na variable capital investment company (SICAV) is a company whose capital and number of shares are not specified in advance and is divided into shares of the company and investors. Only the assets of the company are responsible for your liabilities. its sole purpose is the investment of collective capital.
Obviously, the Sicav is protected by the swiss bank secret. Bank secrecy protects the business relationship between banks and their customers. No information may be disclosed, either to an individual or to any authority. Except in the case of flagrant crime.
