In connection with the entry into force of the Financial Services Act (FinSA) and the Financial Institutions Act (FinIA) in January 2020, these laws require client advisers to enrol on a register: the Swiss Register of client advisers.
The concept of client advisers is relatively broad and encompasses in particular current distributors of collective investment schemes, distributors of financial instruments and investment advisers, whether they are based in Switzerland or abroad.
ARIF has been authorised by FINMA since 14.09.2020 as a registration body for client advisers.
Client advisers have until 20 January 2021 to file an application for enrolment in the Register. If they fail to do so, they will no longer be allowed to continue their business activity.
ARIF’s entire team is at your disposal for any questions or assistance that you might wish to obtain.
