André Valente – The opportunity to leverage onshore administration services for hedge fund managers is gathering momentum in Switzerland. And UBS Fund Services in Switzerland plans to be at the forefront, according to André Valente (pictured) who heads up the business.
This view is based on the premise that, despite regulatory changes, increasing interest for alternative investments will continue. And not just in hedge funds, but other “alternatives” as well. For example, as Switzerland moves its energy policy away from nuclear energy towards clean energy, this will likely create a number of private equity and infrastructure deals in the coming years.
