The Financial Services Act FinSA and the Financial Institutions Act FinIA regulate the licensing and conduct requirements for portfolio managers and trustees in Switzerland.

More about FinSA and FinIA

A supervisory organization is not a public authority but an institution under private law, which checks that asset managers and trustees are in constant compliance with the licensing requirements and the obligations of conduct under FinSA (FIDLEG) and FinIA (FINIG). Accordingly, a supervisory organization should emerge from the market itself. At the same time, it must perform its supervisory activities independently and free of any vested interests. FINcontrol Suisse AG focuses on these objectives.
