CROSS-BORDER FINANCIAL SERVICES
& EU LAW
Cross-border services pose particular questions under financial regulatory frameworks. Especially the emerging EU regulation caused a lot of insecurity in the Swiss financial sector about what is still possible and what is not. We provide clear guidance on your cross-border business. Thanks to our professional experience with regulatory bodies and international law firms, our specialists are able to support you with any questions around MiFID II/MiFIR, AML, GDPR, UCITS, AIFMD, IDD, PSD, EIOPA/ESMA/EBA-Guidelines and many more EU directives or regulations. But not only EU regulation might prevent cross-border business, also the Swiss inbound cross-border framework is becoming more stringent under FIDLEG/FINIG and the relevant FINMA-regulations. Our experts’ advice goes beyond borders – be it into or outside Switzerland.
