The capital increase carried out from 10 May to 26 May 2021 for the HSL Fund (ISIN CH0495275668) was successfully completed with proceeds of CHF 37.6 million.

Salman Baday, Head Sales Switzerland, says: 'The success of the capital increase and the high demand from investors demonstrate the confidence in our investment strategy. We were able to broaden the investors base in the HSL Fund significantly and, with the purchase of the residential real estate portfolio, increase the fund's geographical diversification and earnings potential.'
The listing of the fund on the SIX Swiss Exchange is planned until the end of 2022. The fund shares are currently traded over-the-counter by Bank J. Safra Sarasin Ltd. Shares can also be purchased at all Swiss banks.
