In the sector of asset management crypto-company to date is not to be found in the Alpine Republic of Switzerland. This could now change. At least the approval of the Crypto Fund AG is as an asset Manager, a first step in the direction of market liberalisation.

Financial market Supervisory authority demonstrates a penchant for innovation

Many companies in the industry have been asking for a long time, in your opinion, long-overdue equal treatment with financial service providers, the classic niches of the financial market. The extent to which the subsidiary of the Crypto Finance AG, the Crypto Fund LTD, may be the pioneer, is still to be seen. Properly anyway, that is the provider of the first industry representatives, is now approved by the Swiss financial market Supervisory authority FINMA as an asset Manager (on the Basis of the so-called collective investment schemes act, CISA). The Swiss supervision has been in place since some years, are increasingly open to new way, which have also shown the some time ago published guidelines for ICOs.

Crypto Fund AG Fund service providers with far-reaching Portfolio

The company is in the opinion of many experts, one of the most promising Fund managers in Switzerland. Despite a relatively short existence. For the parent group, Crypto Finance group, the approval for a very important Signal, both for investors, customers as well as the company itself is of great importance. Interested parties who prefer Digital Assets and, for example, Ripple buy with your Wallet in the Boom of the crypto industry to participate in, could draw on these and other suppliers, and perhaps soon also a FINMA-authorisation, increasingly, to Fund products, the capital in currencies such as the Bitcoin or emerging new Coins like Tezos or Monero and other invest.

Important equality with traditional Fund providers

For the Crypto Finance, a subsidiary of the development is especially important, because you can work in terms of regulation now eye-to-eye with Swiss and foreign Fund managers. The release sees the company as a confirmation of the successful work since 2017. The aim of the company to a faster establishment of the still-young asset class of Digital Assets. Switzerland, in turn, may be the trigger of improvements in the recognition of crypto-systems around the world.
