If you are an investment company, you may already have considered establishing yourself in the Swiss market. Other players competing in the pharmaceutical, health care, and technology industries are looking to capitalize on the various benefits Switzerland has to offer.

Which providers are required?

There is no shortage of on-boarding services. Lawyers will help you to set up a company and offer to take a seat on your board. Tax advisors will optimize the mix of income streams. Third-party marketers will advertise access to their network. And office providers will offer shared workspace to keep initial investments and the fixed cost base low.

Focus on revenue instead of admin

The tricky bit, of course, is to recruit, brief and coordinate all those providers. To select them for value, and not simply for the price. And deal with the laws, the local customs, and the four official languages.

Chances are, your country head is a sales-oriented person.

Instead of trying to get the accounting set up, shouldn’t she or he be turning every stone to fill the sales pipeline from day one?

COO expertise at the ready

Alexander founded his first company before entering the financial industry. Which meant dealing with company registers, accounting, social security, and VAT since his university days.

Building on this experience Alexander was later responsible for the entire non-investment related operations of a Swiss based multi-strategy hedge fund group. He also acted as company secretary to several of its group companies and advised the Group Chairman.
