Intensive supervision is a supervisory tool that FINMA can use. An interdisciplinary team, Team Intensive Supervision (TIS), that specialises in handling problem cases can apply one or all of the following measures:
Where deficiencies have been recognised or regulations violated, action is taken in cooperation with the supervised institution and corrective measures are introduced. These can include organisational, personal, operational and financial measures.
Where FINMA and the insurance company concerned cannot agree about the circumstances and the measures required, supervisory law is then enforced and enforcement proceedings are initiated.
