The Annual General Meeting of the Swiss Funds Association (SFA) has elected Felix Haldner (pictured), Head Investment Structures at Partners Group AG, as an additional member on the SFA Board of Directors.
The SFA already represents the interests of asset managers regulated under the CISA. This expansion of the Board of Directors is aimed at ensuring even greater representation of the views and concerns of asset managers looking to the upcoming amendments to legislation. The SFA is thus underscoring its commitment to the asset management industry in Switzerland.
At today’s General Meeting in Bern, the members of the SFA elected Felix Haldner of Partners Group AG to the Board of Directors. “Felix Haldner knows the Swiss and international fund and asset management business inside out. As a representative of one of the leading asset managers operating independently of banks and insurance companies, he will make a significant contribution toward further strengthening the SFA’s position as a representative of the Swiss asset management industry. We look forward to working together with our new colleague on the Board and to representing the interests of supervised asset managers even better in the future,” said Martin Thommen, President of the SFA.
Felix Haldner joined Partners Group in 2001. As a partner and member of the Executive Board, he heads the Investment Structures department and is responsible for the structuring of private market financing and services for institutional clients in legal, tax, regulatory, and structural matters. Prior to joining Partners Group, he was a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers where he advised international insurance companies, investment management clients, and banks on strategic tax planning and investment products. He holds a law degree from the University St Gallen, is admitted to the Swiss Bar, and is a Certified Swiss Tax Expert.
