FinSA&FinIA – what is it about?


On January 1st, 2020 the Financial Services Act (FinSA) and the Financial Institutions Act (FinIA) apply in Switzerland. The FinSA provides for a staged code of conduct for financial service providers in line with the protection requirements of customers and contains a comprehensive revision of prospectus law. The FinIA introduces cross-sector, risk-based supervision of financial institutions. Financial service providers not supervised under previous law will become subject to authorisation. This applies in particular to asset managers and trustees. The two laws aim to strengthen customer protection and create a regulatory “level playing field”, thus contributing to the system security and competitiveness of the financial market. FinSA&FinIA put Swiss financial market regulation on a new footing. We provide you with an overview of the most important contents and developments.
