Switzerland has always been one of the top destinations for foreign asset managers looking to develop both their assets under management and launch new collective investments.
Switzerland has long been seen as the destination of choice for fund managers when it comes to targeting European markets.
It has historically always held the crown as one of the largest fund markets in Europe due to its focus on active management and ongoing financial flows to banks and asset managers. This has led to the development of a portfolio management industry which, according to the latest statistics, manages approximately CHF 3 trillion assets with an annual growth rate of more than 10%. This is why Switzerland continues to attract talents and build up its advantages over its main competitors; a recent study shows that it is now the best-ranked European destination in terms of competitiveness.
