Ultra–strict banking legislation
Switzerland is proactive in maintaining an ultra-strict banking legislation. The requirements imposed by the Swiss authorities on their banks strengthen the protection of your financial assets and increase the stability of the bank itself.
The Swiss banking legislation and regulations, which go far beyond the applicable international standards, require very high solvency of Swiss financial institutions and impose a strict separation between the assets of the bank and those of the bank’s clients.
In addition to the banking legislation, the independent authority FINMA (Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority) demands ongoing compliance with its rules, while the Swiss Bankers Association (SBA) sets guidelines and recommendations for self-regulation.
