In the course of data collection, the financial intermediaries are required to provide data on exposures, leverage, liquidity and counterparty risks of the managed funds on an annual basis. The data is intended to improve the quality of supervision in the area of fund management and to better identify systemic risks. In addition, the data will allow a better assessment of the inherent risks of the financial intermediaries and their funds. International standards and regulations will also be taken into account.
The data collection is risk based. FINMA has set a threshold of CHF 500 million for Swiss funds and CHF 500 million plus alternative investment strategy for foreign funds above which the data is requested. This means that smaller funds with no impact on system stability will not be included in the data collection.
The data collection will be published in the EHP in early December 2021 and the deadline for submission is the end of March 2022.
