POLARIS Investment Advisory AG is a placement agent exclusively focused on alternative investment strategies such as hedge funds and private markets (Private Equity, Private Debt, Real Estate, Infrastructure).
We support successful asset managers in their market entry, fundraising and client focused after-sales activities with institutional investors in Switzerland and Germany. We are a FINMA, Swiss regulated distribution agent, and have successfully raised over USD 1.8bn across different investment strategies. We work with a select group of asset managers worldwide, whom we select through an in-depth due diligence process together with our senior advisors and external investment consultants.
We strongly value long-term relationships with our asset managers, whom we often represent through various fundraising cycles over many years. We co-develop strategies for the best market coverage, develop suitable fund structures, and make sure they comply with local regulation.
For our long-trusted clients, we are the local point of contact and provide them with support and reporting in local language and time zone without additional costs.
