Information for individual investors and clients

The FINMA Public section of our website contains a wealth of easily accessible information for investors, creditors and policyholders ranging from an overview of what FINMA actually does and answers to key questions raised by individuals to public warnings issued by FINMA and our contact form.

FINMA is tasked with protecting investors, creditors and policyholders. It also ensures that the financial markets in Switzerland function properly. Part of its statutory mandate is therefore to publish information for individuals, issue public warnings and receive well-founded complaints from the public about licence holders.
