Swiss occupation funds largely support a rollback of investment regulations, according to a survey by Swisscanto Asset Management. More than half the 224 respondents say the current investment guidelines were an obstacle to making the most of asset allocation.

“The points mentioned include restrictions regarding the use of alternative investments, such as hedge funds, private equity, commodities, and also the level of the foreign currency quota,” the firm said in a statement. The study, which was conducted in association with the Association of Swiss Pension Funds, found that only one in four called for a “general abandonment” of the regulations altogether.
