Just like Fintech is very varied, so are the regulations applicable to it. Whether you pursue your business idea as a start-up or expand your services as an established financial services provider using Fintech, innovative financial service providers are well-advised to determine whether their business case falls into the scope of one or more financial market laws as soon as possible.

What are the challenges involved?

  • Realistically assessing the opportunities and risks presented by your business model as well as the relevant framework conditions
  • Ensuring compliance with all legal and regulatory requirements
  • Building the necessary consumer and investor confidence in order to succeed in the market
  • Obtaining a competitive edge over other Fintech companies, banks, etc.

How can KPMG support you?

  • Analysis of your current setup and assessment of whether your business model may be subject to the Anti Money Laundering Act, the Banking Act or any other financial market legislation
  • Analysis of your anti-money laundering (AML) organization and advice in all AML matters
  • Comprehensive support with the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority for the licensing procedure
  • Competent advice for the incorporation and development of your planned start-up company
