Market access issues

Within the framework of its report on financial market policy in October 2016, the Federal Council defined safeguarding and improving market access for Swiss financial service providers as one of its priorities. 

For Switzerland and its export-oriented financial centre with its leading position in cross-border asset management, access to foreign markets is a key success factor. Cross-border business with clients in the EU area is of significant importance, with particular focus on the key markets Germany, Italy and France. At the bilateral level, improved market access for financial service providers in Switzerland is sought with these and other selected partner countries in Europe, America, Asia and the Middle East.
