20.06.2018 – Our partner Urs Hofer discusses the ramifications of the new Financial Services Act (FinSA or FIDLEG) and the Financial Institutions Act (FinIA or FINIG) on collective investment schemes and asset managers in the current issue of B2B Magazine, the Swiss magazine for collective investments and pension solutions.

Urs Hofer’s contribution to a panel of legal and regulatory experts interviewed in the B2B Magazine about the topic “How FinSA and FinIA will change the current Swiss Collective Investment Schemes Act (CISA)” sheds light on some of the particularities and anticipated implementation issues of the new legal concept of “offering” of financial instruments under FinSA, its interplay with the partially revised CISA and practical impact on fund distribution in Switzerland.
