Inspira Wealth Announces Opening of Swiss Headquarters


Inspira Wealth are pleased to announce the opening of its Swiss Headquarters as of mid - August 2022.

Inspira has spent the last four months completing the purchase of Flore Capita SA Geneva, renaming and repatriating the firm to Zurich. With the corporate actions now complete, the final phase of moving all regulated operations to Zurich will take place in mid-August. Staff will repatriate or be added to the headcount in Switzerland, strengthening our ability to execute the business plan and service our partners and clients.

The choice of Switzerland as our headquarters was based on the forward looking and innovative approach of the regulators and legislators to new technologies and products, while maintaining a robust view on investor protection.

Inspira Wealth Zurich will oversee all the operations of Inspira’s global offices for regulated and unregulated activities, including Inspira Asset Management Luxembourg, Inspira Securities Exchange (ISX) Singapore, Inspira Wealth Dubai, Inspira Wealth London, and Inspira Wealth USA.

A key part of the transition to Switzerland has been to constitute the board. Inspira have chosen industry leading members across the key fields we will be focussing on. Our board members will be able to ensure the best possible governance, oversight and business plan execution for our investors, members, and clients.
