Investment Syndicate

Investment pooling made easy

Co-investors in Switzerland are using investment syndicates (also called investment clubs) to pool their funds in a simple partnership and access venture deals, real estate investments, and angel investments in startups with small ticket sizes.

We ensure a fast, tax-optimized, and compliant setup of your investment syndicate under Swiss law.
