Blockchain is seen as a technology with revolutionary potential. FINMA takes this as an occasion to shed light on the implications of blockchain from a regulatory perspective and will be holding a FINMA roundtable.
At its annual media conference, the Chair of FINMA's Board of Directors and FINMA's CEO discussed current regulatory topics: the differentiated approach FINMA adopts to supervision and the efforts it undertakes in market supervision.
The annual report confirms FINMA commitment to protecting financial market participants and maintaining the strength and integrity of the Swiss financial centre. It also illustrates how FINMA fosters innovation.
The statistical data and anonymised case descriptions presented in the Enforcement report enhance the transparency of FINMA's activities. It also illustrates the measures imposed by FINMA in its rulings.
Fraudulent and unauthorised providers often operate in the financial market, hoping to make some fast money at the expense of investors. Ten simple rules shorten the odds of falling prey to fraudsters.
Business and risk policies followed by banks for their lending activities are subject to FINMA supervision. FINMA works to ensure that mortgage lending to households is sustainable and that the solvency of banks is not put at risk.
