Financial Services

Switzerland is one of the most important banking & financial centers in the world, particularly for private banking. Furthermore, Geneva and Zurich attract more and more financial companies specialized in wealth management, hedge funds, funds of funds, CTA and other alternative investments vehicles.

Chabrier Avocats SA provides a broad range of services in those fields, stretching from the regulatory aspects of the financial services concerned, to the establishment of adequate management and advisory corporate structures. In this context, we assist clients in obtaining the necessary authorizations or licenses to carry out their financial activities in or out of Switzerland. Moreover, we provide support in relation to the incorporation and management of offshore and onshore hedge funds, alternative investments funds and CTA.

Besides the financial services stricto sensu, our firm is also regularly involved in important or complex private equity transactions, both on the investors’ or on the target’s side, and advise our clients in connection with the structuring, syndication and (re)financing of such investments.

Our clients range from financial companies (private equity firms, brokerage firms, hedge funds, alternative investments funds, portfolio managers) to banks and financial institutions.
