Everyday, thousands of pieces of confidential information are exchanged across the border between FINMA, foreign regulators, and international organisations. This practical guide, which is authored by the former head of international cooperation at FINMA, explores how FINMA cooperates and interacts with its foreign counterparts and to what extent Swiss-based entities and individuals are involved.
The book first lays the international and Swiss fundamentals underpinning the framework for international cooperation in the context of financial regulation. It then explores the means for international cooperation provided by FINMA to foreign regulators and international organisations. It finally sets out the growing cooperation expected from regulated and non-regulated entities and individuals in Switzerland.
