The current climate for Swiss SPVs is not specifically regulated nor are there any major legislative protocols in place. Although, there are a few laws
in place which investors must follow, such as:
- Swiss Code of Obligations
- Capital market regulations
SPVs are regulated and monitored by the following:
- SIX Swiss Exchange;
- Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority.
On the 1st of January 2016 Swiss business regulators began implementing an entirely new regulation called the Financial Market Infrastructure Act, which was developed and implemented to assist with creating a more streamlined connection with existing similar regulations around the world, specifically the EU. This was to make it easier for businesses in the SPV market who operate across nations. The EU regulations which were streamlined in the FMI Act were Directive 2014/65/EU and the Directive 2003/71/EC.
