Strategy for a tax-compliant and competitive financial centre

The international pressure to cooperate in the battle against tax evasion is increasing.  The Federal Council aims to create the conditions under which Switzerland as a financial centre can improve this cooperation and at the same time maintain its competitiveness.


The new financial market strategy adopted by the Federal Council is geared towards the management of taxed assets. A further aim is to improve the market access for Swiss financial institutions, reduce the risks posed by systemically important financial institutions as well as contribute actively to international financial system reforms.
