Cross-sector supervisory topics

As an integrated financial market supervisory authority, FINMA has standardised the process of supervision across the various sectors, where appropriate.

FINMA has standardised its processes, tools and concepts wherever appropriate to do so. It has created a number of specialist cross-divisional areas in which cross-sector issues may be dealt with including, in particular, auditing, monitoring due diligence requirements in relation to the avoidance of money laundering, the supervision of the combating of cyber risks, the performance of on-site supervisory reviews at the premises of supervised institutions and the direct transmission of information via supervised institutions to foreign authorities and offices.
