The legal framework within which FINMA operates and performs it supervisory activities allows it considerable scope to establish its own priorities. Derived from its mandate, FINMA’s strategic goals set out those priorities and demonstrate how FINMA will fulfil its remit. These goals, which are reviewed every four years, reflect developments in the financial industry and the challenges they bring. The underlying strategy defined in each goal thus creates a link between FINMA’s legal mandate and its specific activities, giving the work performed by FINMA a longer-term focus.
Approved by the Federal Council in November 2016, FINMA’s current strategic goals set out below cover the period 2017 to 2020.
