5️⃣ Germany & Australia

We want to highlight two jurisdictions we work in – Switzerland and Liechtenstein.

Additionally, Switzerland has developed a clear regulatory framework for hedge funds, making it an attractive destination for investors. It is worth noting that while the coverage of service providers and the crypto-friendliness of Swiss banks is moderate, the setup and maintenance of a crypto hedge fund in Switzerland is quite costly.

European banks and brokers tend to prefer Liechtenstein as a trusted and compliant jurisdiction, making onboarding European professional investors a smoother process. Managing a cryptocurrency hedge fund in Liechtenstein comes with a slightly lower cost compared to Switzerland, although it remains more expensive than operating in the Cayman Islands or the BVI.
