SVC – Ltd. for Risk Capital for SMEs now named Credit Suisse Entrepreneur Capital Ltd.

Since 2010, Credit Suisse has been committed to promoting Switzerland as a strong business center through its own vehicle for venture capital for SMEs. Since it was founded, SVC – Ltd. for Risk Capital for SMEs has provided over 50 companies with investment capital. Some investments in companies have since been successfully sold, with the result that the vehicle can now cover its own operating costs.

In order to give SVC Ltd. a clear profile and an explicit link to Credit Suisse, the company will now be renamed Credit Suisse Entrepreneur Capital Ltd. This will enable even better integration of the entity into Credit Suisse's existing range of services for entrepreneurs and companies seeking capital in Switzerland and – together with other initiatives in this area – further underscores Credit Suisse's commitment to Switzerland as a strong business center. 

The renaming is valid as of February 1, 2019.
