BlueOrchard obtains FINMA Asset Manager License
Geneva, 4 May 2015 – BlueOrchard Finance S.A., a pioneering impact investment manager, proves its institutional quality of governance and investment standards by obtaining the FINMA Asset Manager license.
BlueOrchard is pleased to announce that it has been granted the FINMA license as asset manager of collective investment schemes. This authorization is aligned with BlueOrchard’s global strategy to remain at the cutting edge of investment processes, governance and transparency. Furthermore, the application process has allowed the BlueOrchard team to benchmark itself against industry best practices in key areas such as strategy, risk management and compliance.
As a global impact investment manager since 2001, receiving the FINMA license is a natural step in the firm’s development. The FINMA license not only strengthens the company’s position as an established and highly professional asset manager but also fosters a favourable environment for the growing field of impact investing, thus further distinguishing Switzerland as a leading hub for the asset class.
We are proud to fulfill and exceed the rigorous FINMA requirements. The license is a strong testament to the excellence of our governance standards and internal processes,” says Patrick Scheurle, BlueOrchard’s COO. “We strive to provide our investors with first-class investment solutions, fund management and tailored advisory services that go beyond their expectations. The FINMA license will allow us to continue reaching this goal in the future” adds Peter A. Fanconi, BlueOrchard’s CEO and Member of the Board.
