At this year’s media conference, the Chair of FINMA’s Board of Directors and FINMA’s CEO presented their views on current supervisory issues.
In 2015, repeated misconduct in the financial sector prompted FINMA to strengthen and systematise conduct supervision.
In 2015, FINMA conducted 794
investigations into possible breaches of supervisory law and concluded 55
enforcement proceedings. It stepped up and imposed measures on employees and top management engaging in misconduct at supervised institutions.
