Zurich, 27 August 2019 – The last capital increase prior to the listing of the Helvetica Swiss Commercial (HSC Fund) on the SIX Swiss Exchange will start on 9 September 2019 with a maximum of CHF 99.1 million.

There is no official trading of subscription rights. The Fund Management Company reserves the right, after the subscription period has expired, to acquire shares that have not been subscribed for and then to place them on the market free of charge along with the custodian bank or third parties.
The listing of the HSC Fund on the SIX Swiss Exchange is planned for the last quarter of 2019. The listing will benefit investors by increasing the liquidity of their shares. Until then, the HSC Fund will continue to be traded over the counter by Banque Cantonale Vaudoise in Lausanne.
