Financial Services Act (FinSA)

Making Your Advisory Process FinSA-Compliant

Complying Effortlessly with the Financial Services Act

FinSA is the Swiss counterpart of the European MiFID II Investor Protection and PRIIPs. The Code of Conduct includes a set of rules when offering financial services and distributing financial instruments, with which financial service providers must comply with when interacting with their customers. Client advisors must provide retail investors with Key Information Documents, know the provisions for offering products matching their customer’s risk profile and provide essential information for investment decisions.

SIX has long-standing experience in providing regulatory data and documents, as well as in supporting the industry to comply with directives such as PRIIPs, MiFID II, AIFMD and UCITS. Let us help you turn your challenges with FinSA into your advantage.
