SAAM self-regulation

Independent asset managers are governed by the Anti-Money Laundering Act and either have to be approved by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) or be a member of a recognised Self- Regulating Body (SRO). The SRO of SAAM has been officially recognised since 1999.

 

Financial intermediaries who decide to join the SRO of SAAM automatically become members of the professional association as well – and are therefore obliged to adhere to the professional standards of SAAM in Switzerland. These correspond to official requirements – and are approved by FINMA.
