Federal Financial Services Act (FinSA)

The aim of the Financial Services Act (FinSA) and its implementing ordinance, both of which came into force on 1 January 2020, is to protect the clients of financial services providers and foster comparable terms of business among the financial services offered by various providers. This legislation thereby aims to strengthen the reputation and competitiveness of Switzerland as a global financial hub.

It also sets forth the requirements for the fair, timely and transparent provision of financial services and regulates the distribution of financial instruments.
