FINMA and its national stakeholders

FINMA liaises with a large number of national institutions and associations. It pursues a policy of open and transparent communication with supervised institutions, other stakeholders and the general public, to the extent permitted by legally prescribed official secrecy requirements.

FINMA maintains regular contact in various forms with almost a hundred institutions and associations. These include supervisory and criminal prosecution authorities, other authorities and federal bodies as well as the associations of supervised institutions. FINMA's cooperation with the SNB and with the FDF and the SNB respectively is governed by separate memoranda of understanding (see below).

FINMA also places emphasis on liaising with trade, professional and staff associations, consumer protection organisations and ombudsmen in the various supervisory areas.

Through active dialogue with its stakeholders, FINMA aims to improve understanding of supervisory and regulatory matters and raise awareness of financial market issues.
