SAN FRANCISCO, APRIL 2022 – US Capital is pleased to announce that Jarrod Robertson has joined the group as Senior Vice President heading the group’s new Swiss office in Zug, a leading hub for blockchain with 450 blockchain/crypto companies active in the region. As head of this regional office, Robertson is responsible for US Capital’s clients in Switzerland and adjacent EU countries, providing them with the group’s full range of financial services, including corporate finance, asset management, real estate finance, M&A, and advisory services.

Newly appointed Senior Vice President Robertson has over 10 years of experience working in the international market as a bridge between the US and the EU, providing cross-jurisdictional business consultation services and advising on project development, go-to-market and MVP strategies, market penetration, and capital formation with a specialization in private debt, bond, and equity structuring.
“I am delighted to be joining US Capital and look forward to expanding the group’s presence in Switzerland and across the EU,” said Robertson. “Located just 25 kilometers from Zurich, Zug is on the front line of global finance dealing with digital assets and has become renowned as a leading hub for blockchain, often referred to as Switzerland’s ‘Crypto Valley’. This is an ideal location for US Capital, a global private financial group that specializes in FinTech and RegTech. I look forward to building a dynamic team in Switzerland.”
Charles Towle, COO and Managing Partner at US Capital, said: “It is a real pleasure to have Jarrod on board as head of our new office in Switzerland, as we continue to expand our presence globally.
