Hong Kong and Switzerland to mutually recognise funds

December 12, 2016 | Front | News | etfinfo |

In an exciting development for fund houses in Hong Kong and Switzerland, the Hong Kong SFC and Swiss FINMA have signed a memorandum of understanding which paves the way for mutual recognition of each other’s mutual funds and ETFs. This will give fund distributors and investors in both countries easy access to a large selection of new investment opportunities.

To facilitate fast time-to-market, fundinfo already provides fund publication and dissemination services in Hong Kong and Switzerland. fundinfo’s network in Switzerland covers a wide range of wealth managers, especially the well-known private banks. With a few mouse clicks, investors can access fund documents, data, prices, fees and ratings for thousands of mutual funds and ETFs available in Europe, Hong Kong and Singapore.
