New Swiss financial market law in focus of the Friends of Funds forum

10.10.2017 – As a member of the expert panel for today’s Friends of Funds forum on the topic “New Swiss financial market law – What lies ahead?” our partner Stefan Simon will shed light on the immediate effects of FinSA and FinIA on Swiss collective investment schemes law. Stefan Simon and the other panelists will discuss in particular the proposed rules on the so-called “basic information document” and main differences compared to UCITS IV/PRIIPs, the rules on inducements, research and payment of retrocessions, the regulatory rules of conduct under FinSA as well as equivalence of new Swiss legislation and EU regulations (in particular AIFMD and MiFID II/MiFIR). The event is organised in partnership with the Swiss Funds & Asset Management Association SFAMA. For more information, please visit the website of Friends of Funds and attend the forum Event.
