Foreign financial market infrastructures

Foreign-authorised financial market infrastructures must be recognised by FINMA before they can allow Swiss participants access to their facilities. 

FINMA can recognise foreign stock exchanges, multi-lateral trading venues, central counterparties and trade repositories thus allowing Swiss participants access to their financial market infrastructure facilities.

Requirements for foreign financial market infrastructures

Foreign financial market infrastructures recognised in Switzerland must comply with information and reporting requirements vis-à-vis FINMA. FINMA receives further information about foreign financial market infrastructures from foreign supervisory authorities.
