FINMA publications

FINMA produces a range of publications to provide information on its work and explain its actions. These are all posted on FINMA's website in electronic form. A number of them, including its annual reports and financial statements, are also available in hard copy.
FINMA pursues a policy of broad-based, detailed communication with the general public. Its aim is to ensure the transparency of FINMA's supervisory activity. The information that FINMA provides on general supervisory issues is presented in summarised and anonymised form.

Strategic goals and annual reports and financial statements

FINMA publishes the strategic goals adopted by its Board of Directors. These set out the key aspects of its supervisory activity for the medium and long term. Its annual reports and financial statements are published to meet FINMA's accountability obligation.

Topical supervisory issues

FINMA publishes information on topical supervisory issues in regular reports; these also contain aggregated statistics. Its other forms of publication are addresses and news articles, discussion papers and fact sheets. Specific information for the media is published under a separate heading.

Communication on regulation, companies and individuals

Before issuing its own ordinances or circulars, FINMA opens detailed consultations for the stakeholders.

FINMA is only permitted to provide information on specific companies and individuals if there is sufficient public interest. Press releases are normally used for this purpose.
