Swiss Accredited Investor Criteria

Hi,

What is the Swiss version of the accredited investor criteria, so that you can invest into private comapnies ? i.e. how much income or wealth do you need to meet the criteria. Is this different per canton or the same throughout Switzerland?

In the US it’s USD $200k per year as income or USD $1m in wealth.

And do you have a link to the Gov website.

They also make you sign a form that you confirm to have either substancial expertise in Finance and 500k in assets or 2m in assets. It’s not controlled in anyway tho. I haven’t had any issues with the tax office yet regarding this.

Why would the tax office care?

It’s a financial regulation, nothing to do with taxes. If anything I guess the platform might get in trouble with finma (and you might get in trouble for lying, but no idea what kind of penalty that would be).
