      Investment vehicles

      In order to structure their investments, wealthy private investors and institutional investors can turn to a wide range of special purpose vehicles that can be set up rapidly and without beaurocratic red tape.

      The most common of these structures are the investment company with variable capital (Société d’investissement à capital variable - SICAV) and the common investment fund (Fonds commun de placement - FCP), the two classical structures for a collective investment scheme, the SOPARFI (Société de participations financières), a company that undertakes holding and financing activities, the investment company in risk capital (Société d’investissement en capital à risque - SICAR) and the securitisation vehicle.

      These structures, which are often customised to meet the specific needs of the client, have a multitude of uses: project financing, real estate or alternative investment, venture capital, management of holdings, capital market activity, management of patents and intellectual property, etc.
