1 Initiative Asset Management Switzerland 10 th Swiss Investment Manager Circle Zermatt, January 17, 2014

2 Introduction Switzerland is to become a leading global location for asset management. As an important mainstay of the Swiss financial sector, Swiss asset management is to stand for the highest level of reliability, independence and quality and be known and recognized for these characteristics throughout the world. Page 2 January 17, 2014

3 Goals of the initiative Goals of the initiative Asset Management Switzerland Add value to the Swiss economy. Create new jobs. Increase tax revenues. Enable profitable and sustainable growth of managed assets. Through: Clear differentiating factors versus competing financial centers. Competitive regulatory framework. Homogeneous and internationally accepted standards same business, same rules. Not necessarily same, but equal rules as abroad. Competent and credible supervisory authority. Attractive conditions and framework to attract new asset managers. Strengthening of reputation as an asset management center through targeted marketing activities. Page 3 January 17, 2014

4 ...but some challenges exist Positioning not clear Asset Management often seen as complimentary to Private Banking. No differentiating factors versus competing financial centers. Framework with room for improvement Regulatory framework (quality standards, regulation, supervision). Settlement of foreign asset managers/ enabling start ups. Heterogeneous Asset Management industry Heterogeneous industry with often different interests (and a number of associations). Legislation directed towards organizational form or product, not function. Performance culture not developed Investment performance in the past not of prime importance (Private Banking). No risk-taking culture. Page 4 January 17, 2014
