You can see the rules and regulations in other jurisdictions.
Switzerland can be considered as a very fintech-friendly jurisdiction, despite the fact that only limited fintech-specific regulations or tax regimes exists. Many fintech start-ups and projects show that the legal environment is considered as advantageous.1
Under Swiss law, no specific fintech licence exists at present, as Swiss regulation is technology-neutral and principle-based. Nonetheless, a fintech company may be subject to licence or ongoing compliance and reporting obligations. Some forms of financial business activities are prudentially supervised by FINMA on an ongoing basis and require a licence granted by FINMA, while others only have to join one of Switzerland's self-regulatory organisations that were set up to ensure compliance with anti-money laundering (AML) requirements. The regulations of these self-regulatory organisations (SROs) are recognised by FINMA as a minimum standard for AML compliance.1
