FINMA Licenses and Authorisations Switzerland

As the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA ) is responsible for supervising and monitoring all areas of the financial industry, in particular banks, insurance companies, stock exchanges, securities dealers, collective investment schemes and auditing companies.
