Insch Capital relocates to Lugano in light of new FINMA rules
Alternative investment manager Insch Capital Management SA has relocated from Swiss city of Zug to Lugano, in the canton of Ticino, in part because of pending Swiss regulations.
The move completes the merger between Insch Capital Management and Insch Quantrend Ltd, a financial research company founded in 2010 and already based in Lugano.
“In part, this move back to Lugano and re-structuring is in preparation for the new FINMA (Swiss financial market supervisory authority) rules that will apply to our business in the near future. It will be substantially easier to manage one growing business from one location than two separate businesses from two separate locations,” said Christopher Cruden, Insch’s chief executive.
Cruden added that the quality of life and abundance of experienced and qualified professionals made Lugano an interesting location for the business.
Insch is a privately owned alternative investment manager and a regulated Swiss fiduciary company.
The firm is member of a Swiss regulatory institution for money laundering matters and is active in asset management, investment consultancy and commodity finance.
