The New Reviewing Body

The Financial Services Act establishes a new prospectus regime in Switzerland requiring the publication of a prospectus for public offerings of securities and the admission to trading on a trading venue. It introduces a new regulatory body – the reviewing body (Prüfstelle) – to be authorized by FINMA and responsible for review and approval of prospectuses. This article discusses the setup and operation of such reviewing body, the prospectus requirements and content as well as the review and approval of the prospectus.
